I ran across this cool article the other day about how apes may be closer to speaking than what we used to think. There is a lot of science involved that I will not butcher by attempting to explain…
But, you can read the smart stuff HERE.
The story features the famous gorilla Koko and some noises that she is able to make. Which, some are saying is a form of communication and understanding. Check out the article, watch the videos, and make your own conclusion. I thought it was interesting… and I kinda want to hang out with Koko now!
