This will bring a tear to your eyes
Maybe I’m just a big softy, but when I saw this video posted on Pharyngula the other day, it brought a little tear to my eye. Anyone who still holds on to the idea we are the only species capable of such a complex range of emotion has probably never really bothered to research our ape cousins. Just ask Jane Goodall (my dream grandmother) what the range of ape emotions are: she claims they are exactly the same as ours. I find it amazing there is a universality to friendship, love and affection in this world. Don’t you?
