Koko in the looking glass

Koko likes to look at herself in the mirror, and yes she occasionally finds it useful in spotting and removing bits of spinach (or other leafy vegetables) from between her teeth. She also flosses every night before bed, just to be sure. You see Koko, like us, is just another great ape, and with that comes the baggage of self-consciousness, vanity and the desire to stay healthy.
