  • Important to note that “ape sign language” research has largely been debunked; human brains are highly geared towards learning language in a way ape brains simply aren’t.

  • “There are examples of chimps throwing sticks at humans” probably after the chimps saw humans doing that with sticks there’s a video I kinda forgot but there was a orangutan using farm equipment or something probably just doing what he sees people do everyday

    McmTJMcmTJVor Tag
  • The part about all great apes having been taught sign language is a bit misleading. Yes, some apes have been able to learn a variety of signs, but they have each time failed to use it for advanced communication besides asking for things like food, toys, etc. And naming objects.

  • the reason there rarely are white gorillas is because that one white gorilla snowflake was just an albino but there isn't such thing as just a white gorilla

    Burning DwarfBurning DwarfVor 2 Tage
    • Well no but I understand, however chimps, Gorillas, Bonobos do require strong social bonds like us, and orangutans don't due to competition for food. I think the video explained that. And humans, chimps/bonobos, and gorillas are actually the closest in relation, we are apart of the human tribe or clade.
