Who's Aping Who?
Bringing Up BabyStreaming Video - 2013
They're hairy, they flaunt their bottoms shamelessly, and their manners are appalling. But look into the eyes of a gorilla, an orangutan, or a chimpanzee and you can't help feeling the connection. We're all related - all members of the great ape family. This fascinating program examines the development of ape and human identities from birth to first speech. Witness amazing footage of apes learning to communicate using sign language then travel to the Kansas City Zoo as we visit Jill, the first orangutan ever to have her pregnancy monitored. What scientists learn from her pregnancy could help us understand more about our distant relatives and their existence in the wild. In this program, explore ape and human development, from birth to communication, along with remarkable segments covering feeding, tool use, and problem-solving by apes.
