The primate fossil record is far from complete, and sadly, it may never be. The natural habitat for primates is inconducive for fossil preservation, which is why we only ever find skull fragments, jawbones and teeth at best. For all we know, there could have been members of the gorilla family who grew just as large as Giganto. Hell, we were lucky we even found Giganto at all!
