The Ape Who Went to College

I just watched a very interesting documentary about Chantek, an orangutan who was taught sign language and raised under human conditions.  It would be amazing to meet him someday!  It’s a shame that no one’s tried to repeat his experiment.  Wouldn’t it be fascinating to raise a breeding population of orangutans this way and then see how they teach their children?  We need more crazy, wealthy ape-enthusiasts in the world…  You should check out the documentary, though!  Young Chantek is adorable!
