Question. Why are a primates arms long?

"HOMINOID STRUCTURE"

As the skeleton of a chimpanzee (1) and gibbon (2) to the right show, apes have short backs with wide, barrel-shaped chests and robust pelvic girdles. The length of spine between rib cage and pelvis is much shorter in apes than in monkeys. These features are related to the upright posture of their bodies. The development of a vertical posture in apes was accompanied by increased manual dexterity. Apes’ fore limbs are longer than their hind limbs (except for humans). Apes have extremely flexible shoulders, elbows and wrists. The two bones (ulna and radius) in the lower fore limb and the two bones (tibia and fibula) in lower hind limb of apes are separate and highly mobile. All apes lack tails as they are not needed for balancing.

so why will an alien have long arms, they don't walk on all 4's or swing thru tree's do they?  All species are adapted to the environment they live in, if you need longer arms, then why? Why should an alien have developed long arms? There HAS to be a reason!!  Id have thought aliens with long arms and skinny bodies might find it awkward using those arms, anatomy tends to be balanced

Other than that of course, I dont believe any of it anyway..

I agree, that it looks rather silly, the nuances of the story vary differently, what this indicates more is many species with long arms, which seems rather unlikely, although I suppose long arms might be advantageous in some situations, I do not know about these ridiculously long arms that would only be developed under low gravity - try holding your arms out to the sids and count to 100 - but I do believe the best deadlifters are known to have long arms.

But all in all, every time I see this thread, I canot help but think of.........................

and what will make you say that? If something is capable of building a space craft it will need hands wont it? Or similar! And if a species evolve enough to do space travel, they will no doubt, like man, be top of the food chain...on their world..

  Humans probably evolved over a long period of time, from ancestors that moved about the ground on all four limbs, making for comparatively  short arms. A species with a more direct descent from an arboreal  species might retain at least some of the arm length of such ancestors.
On a planet where an ancient climate-change-based conversion of forest to grasslands did not occur as it did on Earth, a more direct descent of bipeds from brachiators may have been the favored route of development.
Long arms could also be due to an adaptation other than brachiation,  such as the usefulness of the ability to reach over long distances, in a particular environment. This could be a natural adaptation, or might even be the result of genetic engineering.

Posted 11 April 2013 - 05:20 AM

I think the "aliens with long arms" phenomena is due to some kind of deep seated fear humans have for other apes.

They say that your arm span should be as wide as you are tall, but by that measure my own arms are almost 3 inches longer then they should be. I'm about 5 foot 8 inches and my arm spread is about 6 foot 2 inches. Am I part alien, I wonder. Maybe I'm better suited to space? More hightly advanced??

Here at Intel we make processors on 12 inch wafers. And, the individual processors on the wafers are called die. And, I am employed to check these die. That is why I am the DieChecker.

Or, since 1977, when Close Encounters first come out, we see toward the end,  the aliens in the big mother-ship....there is one BIG alien with really long spindly arms...(and the typical grey appearance). no doubt this could influence some people too..

But I like to stick with anatomy being balanced, if you had extra long arms, you'd need extra big biceps/triceps and shoulders to work those arms, so they may not look so skinny in real life. Ha, if they existed in real life that is

Arms, even long ones, would not need to be especially muscular if they belonged to a being who lived on a world with  comparatively weak gravity.

well thats tru I guess, but that will also make it quite hard to use same arms in our gravity tho wouldnt it?

Anyway a thought occurred, I dont know what country your in, but in the UK we have these odd spiders...(and always in my bathroom for some reason).. that have very very long skinny legs, and a little tiny body in the middle. Cellar spiders is the name

So yes I guess something can have extra long limbs without struggling to move too much.

Mind you cellar spiders dont move too quick either
