Koko assumes a blissfully content look as Penny scratches her back. Grooming is an important part of great ape social interaction, and if you don"t think it"s in our genes too, ask someone to give you a back scratch (or vice versa) and feel the endorphins flow. A simple way to maintain good physical and mental health. Thanks for reminding us, Koko.
