Thom Dunn I will search for titles on "talking" chimps, i.e., chimps who can sign and do , last I heard, learning up to 400 words.....Exciting in that they not only sign individual words but can "slot" words together in new combinations, sentence creation ! Carl Sagan asked, "Why are chimpanzees in jail" ? Damn good question. Out.


Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) Chimpanzees' human style communication (and their being in, uh, jail) is actually a major theme in Debbie Lee Wesselmann's novel "Captivity," which is set in a South Carolina chimp sanctuary and whose protagonist is a woman whose father used to engage in research into that area, to the extent of taking a female chimp into his home and treating her as a sort of "sister" to his kids. Fascinating indeed!

Bettie☯ This is the best list yet for jogging my memory of past reads - so many I had forgotten to add to my 'read'.

Thanks


Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) Thanks to you, in turn! :)

Thom Dunn When I looked a second time at this list I saw many titles I had neglected the first time I voted....Remember, Apes are people too.

Bulletin ! Did y'all see that new experiment where chimps can recall a scrambled array of numbers 1 thru 10 flawlessly, better than any human but a savant ?

Monkeys also perform additions essentially the same way we do ...

They're really amazing creatures!
