RIP Koko (1971-2018), The Highly Intelligent Gorilla Who Learned to Communicate Through Sign Language –

 

 

 

Koko, the incredibly loving and highly intelligent western lowland gorilla who learned how to communicate with humans through a modified form of American Sign Language through her caretaker Penny Patterson, mercifully died in her sleep at the age of 46 at her longtime California home within The Gorilla Foundation. Koko was a kind, creative soul and had who adopted a litter of kittens. She will definitely be missed by a great many. Koko’s fans have taken to social media to express their sadness at her departure from this world.
