Koko watches herself on the small screen

Koko watches herself on the small screen

Posted On: March 12, 2010
Date Taken: July 06, 2006

Photographer: Penny Patterson

Sometimes Koko likes to review the video footage that Penny and Ron (Drs. Patterson and Cohn) take of her as part of the ongoing research study known as Project Koko. Here Koko seems particularly enthralled with a closeup of herself. Wonder what she"s thinking. Because Koko knows sign language, Penny and Ron could actually ask her what she"s thinking, but they don"t always think to do so at the moment (that"s why we take so many photos and videos - for retrospective analysis and to plan future studies).

PS: Thank you for wishing Koko such a happy birthday; we"ll be sharing some birthday photos of her magnificent July 4th celebration soon.
