Species cannot produce fertile offspring.
Are we different enough from Chimps/Gorillas that we can't produce offspring, sterile or fertile?
I'm doing this for a school paper, but I have not been able to find any extensive research on the subject.

A shakey area for a new topic, but let's see what we can do
Species cannot produce fertile offspring.
I think you meant to say "Species can produce fertile offspring".
Are we different enough from Chimps/Gorillas that we can't produce offspring, sterile or fertile?
I will restate this as "Is a human/chip or human/gorilla hybred possible"?
I'm doing this for a school paper, but I have not been able to find any extensive research on the subject.
You're asking members of this forum to help you do your homework. Such, in the past, has been viewed by management as being a shakey proposition (for lack of better terms). Might we ask "for what level in school and what class are you doing this paper?"

Haha, thanks for catching that error on definition of species. I meant to say that organism of different species cannot produce fertile offspring.
This is a HS english paper on hoaxes. I'm exploring the theory that bigfoot could be a hybrid between a chimp and a human.

A vaguely "Human Origins" topic
Topic tossed out into discussion, while it's still relevant to doing the paper.
