Then "good."   Then Koko signed "that" pointing to one of the monkeys and then signed "lip" (Koko"s word for girl, and also for Penny).

Do you think that Koko was simply pointing out that Penny was wearing the same colors as the monkey (look carefully and you"ll see that Penny"s blue sweatshirt, worn under a pink vest, is the same color as the monkey"s pants)? Since Koko frequently makes color comparisons like this it is probably a good bet. (In fact Koko is often Penny"s unsolicited fashion advisor. )

You never know which aspect of an object, event or concept Koko is going to focus on; she"s just as unpredictable as we are.

    [body] => As many of you know, Koko loves to take photos (with Ron or Penny's camera) and even managed to get an early photo on the cover of National Geographic - a self-portrait of herself taken in a mirror.  The current photo was taken by Koko, who simply turned the camera around and looked into the lens.  Interesting effect, though a bit out of focus.  It's not easy taking your own photo, but Koko doesn't always do things that are easy; she's a natural explorer.
