When Koko was little, she used to ask Penny to bring her everything. But very soon she learned how to do things for herself. Here, Koko simply grabs a clean cup, goes over to the sink, and turns on the faucet to get a drink. It"s amazing how easy it is to forget she"s a gorilla. But maybe that"s the point - there are more similarities than differences. And both are interesting.

To see more of Koko interacting with her environment, check out the Koko & Friends DVD , or other documentary videos in KokoMart. Thank you!
