King Kong, or Megaprimatus Kong, is a species of giant gorilla only inhabiting the large sinking island called Skull Island.




The last known Megaprimatus Kong was the specimen known as King Kong, which died in New York City after escaping a show by Carl Denham where Kong was the captured animal star, and he was later shot down by airplanes after climbing to the top of Empire State Building, taking Ann Darrow with him, but leaving her standing at the top of the tower as she watches Kong fall to his death.
