Talking To Coco Gorilla

July 23, 2017

Coco is a female gorilla (born July 4, 1971), which, according to a specialist working with her Francine Patterson, as a result of the research program of scientists at Stanford University, has mastered more than a thousand sign language Amsleine and is able to listen and understand about two thousand English words.

Her IQ is 95, which in any case corresponds to the intelligence of a normal person.

She knows how to joke and describe her feelings - sadness, discontent. Koko's most famous joke: she called herself a “good bird”, stating that she could fly, but then she admitted that it was a joke. When her partner, the gorilla Michael, tore off the leg of her rag doll, Koko told him in sign language: “You're a dirty, bad toilet!”. Coco understands perfectly well what the past and the future are.

She knows such abstract concepts as "boredom" and "imagination." When Koko saw a horse with bits in its mouth, it signaled "The Horse is Sad", explaining - "Teeth". Koko reports when she is ill, and can even express the power of pain on a scale.However, she prefers to endure until the pain becomes very severe. Koko also does not like to bathe in the bath and on the photo of another monkey led to the bath, responded: “I cry there” (there are no forms of the word in American sign language).
