Hominidae Information Page

Welcome to the Hominidae Family Information Website! 

Here, you can find information about various species in the Hominidae Family. The Hominidae family includes only those species very closely related to Homo Sapiens Sapiens, or humans. We encourage everyone to think about what it means for us to have evolved from Hominidaes and we ask everyone to ask us questions. We at the Zoanthropy Society pride ourselves in our knowledge of Hominidae's and are composed of highly intelligent Hominidae experts. We support and encourage difficult questions regarding our revolution.

If you would like to join our community of hominidae enthusiasts, please send us an email and we'll add you to our email list which will notify you of meet ups and events, weekly news, and much much more!

Listed below are ways you can become more involved in our community:


Sign up for our weekly newsletter and learn about what we really do as a group.


Sign up to become event planners and site moderators to directly contribute to our cause.


Become a Hominidae expert for the group. If you feel qualified please reach out to us to learn a bit more about this position.


Become a scout to report back on different Hominidae's that are hanging out at the parks! We have hominidae experts all around the world giving us update from Zoos, Jungles, and more!


Start talking about hominidae's to other people to get the word out. We want everyone to be talking about hominidaes!


Go out and talk to hominidaes. Hominidaes are suprising all around us. Go out there and try and get into a convseration with a few of them.


Question those who do not believe in Zoanthropy. We condemn hostile approaches but strongly support intelligent conversations regarding zoanthropy.

The Hominidae, whose members are known as great apes or hominids, are a taxonomic family of primates that includes eight extant species in four genera: Pongo, the Bornean, Sumatran and Tapanuli orangutan; Gorilla, the eastern and western gorilla; Pan, the common chimpanzee and the bonobo; and Homo, which includes modern humans and its extinct relatives (e.g., the Neanderthal), and ancestors, such as Homo erectus. Shown above are two primates deeply in love. The male primate is deeply embracing the female primate closely mirror the affection of couples that are in love in the human society.


Now it's time to get into the real conversation. No matter how we look at it, we come back to one conclusion and one belief. We are animals. No not just in the scientific sense but actually animals. We in this community have people who've transformed themselves into rabbits, dogs, elephants, pigs, lions, Rhinoceros, and llamas. No matter who we talk to, people say we are crazy so we're expected to act like "humans" but we know who we are better than anyone else.  If you ever felt like this before and feel more like an animal than anything else there's nothing to be ashamed of we are here to help you out. We love and support all animals and genuinely believe there are gifted animals around there not being able to be themselves due to social standards and pressure.

Below are reviews from animals within our community.


"I've always known I was a rabbit. I was scared to come out and tell people but since young, from the way I ate, the things I enjoyed eating, to the way I skipped I knew deep down that I was a rabbit. Since I found the zoanthropy society, I've finally found a support group that love me for who I am instead of who they want me to be"

" I always felt that I was different. I played football and rugby growing up and as I grew older and older I no longer wanted to play the game and chase the ball but rather tackle players to the ground. As I grew older and older whenver I ran into a small animal whether that be a squirrel, a rat, or a bird it would drive me nuts and give em the urge to track them down. Finally I knew I had to find out what was wrong with me"

"When I was young, in order to prove that I was a bird, I jumped off a roof to show them I could fly. I ended up falling and breaking my wings. Since that incident, everyone told me I just had too much imagination and that I was a human. For the next 15 years I believed what people told me and thought I was a human. But since I met this supportive group, now I know what's going on. I was a baby bird when I initially tried flying. Of course I was going to fail. Now I spend my time mastering the flap and the wap. Because of the 10 years I've lost I know it's not going to come easy. But with the support of the Zoanthropy Society, I'm more convinced then ever to be the bird I'm supposed to be and soar into the sky.

Quick Facts:

  • A hominoid, commonly called an ape, is a member of the superfamily Hominoidea

  • A hominid is a member of the family Hominidae. Ex: orangutans, gorillas, chimpanzees, and humans.

  • A hominine is a member of the subfamily Homininae: gorillas, chimpanzees, and humans. But excludes orangutans.

  • A hominin is a member of the tribe Hominini: chimpanzees and humans.

  • A human is a member of the genus Homo, of which Homo sapiens is the only extant species, and within that Homo sapiens sapiens is the only surviving subspecies.

The name, Hominidae was at first given to the family of humans and their (extinct) close relatives, with the other great apes all being placed in a separate family, the Pongidae. But, that definition eventually made Pongidae paraphyletic because at least one great ape species (the chimpanzees) proved to be more closely related to humans than to other great apes. Most taxonomists today encourage monophyletic groups—this would require, in this case, the use of Pongidae to be restricted to just one closely related grouping. Thus, many biologists now assign Pongo (as the subfamily Ponginae) to the family Hominidae. The taxonomy shown here follows the monophyletic groupings according to the modern understanding of human and great ape relationships.
