How to use "Sivapithecus" in context?

Sivapithecus was a small, two toed creature that roamed the African forests about 4 million years ago. Little is known about this creature, but it is suspected that it was somewhat related to the orangutan. Sivapithecus would have been one of the first apes to live in Africa, and its extinction may have led to the decline of the earlier apes in the region.
