You might recognize Koko the Gorilla as the famous gorilla that knows sign language and you’ll definitely recognize the hilarious Robin Williams.
Koko was brought to the San Francisco Zoo as a malnourished baby and became part of an important experiment that’s spanned decades. Koko knows more than 1,000 words and can express herself quite well.
She’s garnered a handful of celebrity fans over the years and one special fan who became a friend is Robin Williams. Williams visited to help bring attention to apes and Koko specifically.
Williams was clearly nervous and very moved at meeting Koko but they soon warmed up to each other and shared a very special day that day.
