This was a very very special moment for me. When a female chimpanzee reached out to me and I took her hand. A very unique and wonderful and touching moment, one I will never forget. It also saddens me. She was in a cage in quarentine, separated from the rest of the chimps to protect her and her little baby and I guess to give them space before they rejoined the group. She had a sadness about her. She needed to be romping through the forest (a few miles every day) with her own kind, far away from human intervention, cruelty and selfishness...
