  1. Nice article Hank! Check out Oliver, the human chimpanzee. Here’s a link…

    Thought that this was interesting. Apparently, Oliver had a predisposition to walk on his hind lings all of the time. His facial features are disturbingly human, and he also showed a sexual interest in the trainer that he lived with. The only hole I can see in the bipedalism is that he did live with a couple who trained chimps for movies. But, cool story nonetheless.
