    Chimpanzee?

    Anyone have any idea about any message a chimpanzee might have for me please, personally I don't like them but that's beside the point, thanks

    The hero in this story is a human being named Rick Swope who visits the
    Detroit zoo once a year with his family. One day, as he watched the chimpanzees in their big
    new enclosure, a fight broke out between two adult males. Jojo, who had been at the zoo for
    years, was challenged by a younger and stronger newcomer, and Jojo lost. In his fear he fled into
    the moat which was brand new, and Jojo did not understand water. He had gotten over the barrier
    erected to prevent the chimpanzees from falling in—for they cannot swim—and the group of
    visitors and staff that happened to be there watched in horror as Jojo began to drown. He went
    under once, twice, three times. Rick Swope could bear it no longer. He jumped in to try to save
    the chimp, despite onlookers yelling at him about the danger. He managed to get Jojo's dead
    weight over his shoulder, and then crossed the barrier and pushed Jojo onto the bank of the
    island. Rick held him there—the bank was very steep and if he were to let go Jojo would slide
    back into the water—even when the other chimps charged toward him, screaming in excitement.
    Rick held Jojo until he raised his head, took a few staggering steps, and collapsed on more level
    ground.
    The director of the institute called Rick. “That was a brave thing you did. You must have
    known how dangerous it was. What made you do it?”

    “Well, I looked into his eyes. And it was like looking into the eyes of a man. And the
    message was, ‘Won't anybody help me?’”
    Rick Swope risked his life to save a chimpanzee, a nonhuman being who sent a message
    that a human could understand. Now it is up to the rest of us to join in too.

    What a beautiful story.....I liked that very much....
    Isn't it down in history that we came from apes?    We matured over the years,our body matured from losing the hair,the features of the Ape etc.    

    Even apes in Zoos,even though they are kept in cages,must mature through passing through our times.   Our more modern times.
    They understand what we say,do we understand them?

    Sorry Violet,moved from your question....a chimpanzee?   
    Now chimpanzee is a more intelligent monkey than others,I think.
    Something about moving forward in the future?  
    Progression?  Apes are progressing all the time....
     :hugz: Sorry,that's all I could think of....

    We developed from the monkey race but I still think leaving a certain amount of the wildness of the ape in us.

    I wonder eventually if the 'monkey' characteristics will fade away,leaving just completely a civilised man. No more wars for instance!

    Actually, Joan, the latest research shows that we did NOT descend from apes, but just the opposite.

    See story here: http://www.upi.com/Science_News/2009/10/01/Study-Man-did-not-evolve-from-apes/UPI-40881254412291/

    Read it,and that is interesting.   So what exactly did we originate from?
    Brings a memory back from years ago.   Reading in the paper that caves had been discovered with pictures painted on the walls.   From way back in cave man age.
    Pictures of men wearing space helmets on their heads....
