AMAZING - Koko, the Stanford-educated gorilla who could speak about 1000 words in American Sign Language, and understand about 2000 in English. What most people don’t know, however, is that Koko was an avid Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood fan. As Esquire reported, when Fred Rogers took a trip out to meet Koko for his show, not only did she immediately wrap her arms around him and embrace him, she did what she’d always seen him do onscreen: she proceeded to take his shoes off!
When you're tiny, carrying things is tough. Especially when those things are peanuts, which are five centimetres long. The chipmunk,a 15cm rodent, which weighs just 120g can cram things almost half the size of its own body into its mouth. They are equipped with a special tool to make this easier: their cheek pouches. Separated from the rest of the mouth by a piece of skin, both chambers reach down to the chipmunk's shoulders and serve as temporary storage space for food.
