Koko relaxes in one of her plastic baby pools in the outdoor yard on a warm sunny day. If you look closely, you"ll notice that there"s no water in the pool. That"s because Koko (and most other gorillas) are not very fond of water - except to drink. But Koko is fond of having her very own water "vessel" to keep up with Ndume"s (see KokoPix June 30, 2005).
