Anthropoid ape

Anthropoid ape (2254)

The anthropoid ape was a humanoid creature that was encountered in captivity on Talos IV by Christopher Pike in 2254.

In self-defense, one of the Talosians made himself look like the anthropoid ape to Pike, but this disguise was not successful. (TOS: "The Cage")

In the scripts for "The Cage", the creature was described as "a flat anthropoid-spider thing" with "ugly fangs". However, the episode's final credits give it the name "anthropoid ape".
The anthropoid ape was, like the humanoid bird, played by Janos Prohaska. The costume was a creation by master sculptor Wah Chang and was a reuse from the TV series The Outer Limits, for which both Prohaska and Chang also worked. (Star Trek: The Magazine Volume 3, Issue 9,  p. 71) Originally, it was used for the Calco creature in the episode "Fun and Games".
