This is the sequel to the 1978 documentary "Koko - A Talking Gorilla" about Koko the lowland gorilla taught to speak American sign language by her keeper Penny Patterson and brings her story a further 20 years up to date. The first film is elsewhere on here and should really be watched first.
This is a must see for animal lovers and will transform your view of animal intelligence and their ability to converse with us. Koko is fully capable of understanding and communicating complex emotions like love, friendship, fear, grief and loss. Her intelligence as measured on a modified IQ scale is a high as a young child's. In most respects apart from her lack of vocal chords that can create speech she's as human as you and I. To think that animals as intelligent as this are still slaughtered for bushmeat is beyond my comprehension.
