Koko : Queen Of The Apes ...
Today is a special Sunday.
What's the betting that when you first saw the picture shown above you thought we were set to slide straight into some sort of sarcasm?
Another politician to be pilloried perhaps?
'Fraid not friends. Today we're giving politics a pass.
Instead, we want to share one of the most extraordinary stories we ever set eyes on.
The amazing animal above is called Koko. She's a mature 35 year old, 22 stone, lowland gorilla.
And surprise, surprise -- she speaks.
Can you say 'awesome ape'?
Prepare to have your mind blown -- in the nicest possible way.
My friend Koko ~~ the 22-stone gorilla.
