Koko shows us her intelligence daily. She uses every resource available to her to express herself. An example of this happened this week. Koko was briefly introduced to a unique gift from a friend — a life-size plush baby giraffe. Penny was supposed to bring it inside for Koko to play with, but forgot! Not to worry however, because Koko remembered and promptly reminded Penny: As she often does in the afternoon, Koko was looking through her Highlights magazine and signed the name of the friend who gave her the giraffe, then pointed to a child’s drawing of a giraffe on the page in front of her (see photo below left). Penny put two and two together and brought the giraffe to Koko, who spent the rest of the afternoon with her new friend.

He is 10 years younger than Koko (31) and about 150 pounds heavier. Male silverback gorillas can grow to be over twice as heavy (and strong) as female gorillas. This may be one reason why natural gorilla family groups typically contain several females with a single silverback (and some youngsters), and why silverbacks can become stressed by strangers — they are responsible for the whole troop, which can extend to their human caregivers in captivity, if they have developed strong (interspecies) bonds.
