Gorilla loved her pet kitten, unfortunately, it got into an accident. What happens when gorilla finds out about it is INCREDIBLE!!!
Isn’t this incredible?! Koko is involved in The Gorilla Foundation proram, which includes teaching American Sign Language to two lowland gorillas. Their intellectual, physical, and linguistic development has been studied extensively since their early life. Before this Project, very little was known about gorillas’ intelligence. Koko is 43 years old now, she has a working vocabulary of over 1000 signs, she understands approximately 2,000 words of spoken English. This gorilla is the one, who initiates most of the conversations with her human companions and she typically constructs statements, consisting of three to six words. Koko’s IQ was tested to be between 70 and 95 on a human scale, where 100 is considered “normal”. The project, Koko’s involved in, has shown that gorillas possess qualities that were previously considered exclusively human, such as thought processes, imagination and feelings. Project Koko is dedicated to the study of the evolution and development of human communication. It suggests, if not proves, a gestural origin of human language.
