    [body] => Someone emailed us that question in response to the Jan. 12 KokoPix.  It"s hard to believe sometimes  that gorillas can act (and think and feel) so much like us - without having an actor inside.  But we have "actors" inside us too, and sometimes the way we act probably prompts gorillas like Koko to ask "is that a real human?".


By the way, Koko has been spending more time inside this past week, as the temperatures in northern California have been getting down below freezing at night - not the ideal temperature for lowland gorillas. Thank goodness (and human scientists and engineers) for climate control technology.

Gorillas are treated as a food commodity in certain parts of Africa - where there"s lots of logging and mining going on, and food supplies are scarce (but not absent). In order to end this "Bushmeat Trade" it will take large numbers of people to wake up and realize that gorillas are far too conscious, emotional, intelligent, empathetic (... i.e., like us) to allow their human-driven extinction to continue. Wouldn"t we all feel better if we helped them survive, and gave our children"s children a chance to know them?
