Gorilla Seeks Help Using Sign Language
WOODSIDE, Calif. - When Koko the gorilla used the American Sign Language gesture for pain and pointed to her mouth, 12 specialists, including three dentists, sprang into action. The result? Her first full medical examination in about 20 years, an extracted tooth and a clean bill of health. >
Koko and Ndume, her partner of 11 years (he doesn't "speak"), have been trying unsuccessfully to have a baby
I'm glad to hear Koko is okay and that those ASL signs are coming in handy. Best wishes to Koko and Ndume in their quest for parenthood.
