  5. Crazy stuff. They also teach chimps to speak in sign language. It's pretty amazing.
  6. This is some Planet Of The Apes shit I saw a few days back lol
  7. I'm 30% sure these aren't real apes.....
  8. I wonder how far off gorillas were from speech on their own evolutionary path before humans became dominant.
  9. They had a whole department dedicated to teaching chimpanzees sign language at my college so I'm 99.9% sure they are real.
  10. people who hunt great apes or any animals for that matter for purposes other than food should have their hands and feet cut off and be burned alive.
  11. hunting for other great apes is no different from hunting humans, thatd be like dogs hunting dogs.
  12. ^chimps hunt monkeys, its just nature bro.

  13. LOL that will be relevant when the german sheperd invents the nuke :smoking:

    cool video though, I remember watching a bunch of stuff on Koko awhile back, trippy stuff indeed :smoke:
  14. Why did they name him Michael?

    That's probably the least interesting name they could come up with.

    He's a Gorilla. Give him a name that sounds like a fucking Gorilla.
  15. leave michael alone!
  16. Maybe he goes by Mike. :cool:
