They are capable of things such as speech and building houses, and typically wear clothing, though the amount varies drastically with the individual, with Donkey Kong himself only wearing a tie, while many others wear full outfits. They seem to be native to Donkey Kong Island , and share an animosity with much of the crocodilian Kremling race. While most of them share the surname "Kong," they are not all directly related to one another. Kongs can resemble any number of real-life primates, with Donkey Kong , Funky Kong , and several others being gorillas, Diddy Kong being a monkey, Dixie Kong and Tiny Kong being chimpanzees, and Lanky Kong being an orangutan. In the Donkey Kong Country cartoon, they are never referred to as "Kongs" outside of their individual names.
