MONKEY WALKS UPRIGHT
    #2915244 - 07/22/04 10:57 AM (13 years, 3 months ago)

I know this belongs in Shroomery News Service, but this is really fucking astonishing.
Monkey Walks!

JERUSALEM, Israel (AP) -- A young monkey at an Israeli zoo has started walking on its hind legs only -- aping humans -- after a near death experience, the zoo's veterinarian said Wednesday.

Natasha, a 5-year-old black macaque at the Safari Park near Tel Aviv, began walking exclusively on her hind legs after a stomach ailment nearly killed her, zookeepers said.

Monkeys usually alternate between upright movement and walking on all fours. A picture in the Maariv daily on Wednesday showed Natasha standing ramrod straight like a human. The picture was labeled humorously, "The Missing Link?"

Two weeks ago, Natasha and three other monkeys were diagnosed with severe stomach flu. At the zoo clinic, she slipped into critical condition, said Igal Horowitz, the veterinarian.

"I was sure that she was going to die," he said. "She could hardly breathe and her heart was not functioning properly."

After intensive treatment, Natasha's condition stabilized. When she was released from the clinic, Natasha began walking upright.

"I've never seen or heard of this before," said Horowitz. One possible explanation is brain damage from the illness, he said.

Otherwise, Horowitz said, Natasha's behavior has returned to normal.

I guess that near death experienced provoked instant evolution!

Heh heh...seriously, though...if art, and everything else human is only created because we know about death (just an idea here) and are trying to do something with ourselves in the time we have here other than just eat, sleep, and have sex...maybe near-deathness really did wake the monkey up!

Follow-up story will be about them going in to feed the monkeys, and the upright one walks up and just says:

"Look, just cause we're monkeys doesn't mean we necessarily want bananas. All your petty little tourists daily come and watch us in this poor excuse for a replication of our natural environment, eating their hot dogs and their hamburgers and their candy, and do you not think we feel jealousy? Are we not brethren? If you prick us, do we not bleed?!"

I watched a show on discovery where this monkey walked upright also. It was called Humanzee. They were trying to find out if someone had crossbred a human and monkey, sorta like how the liger's at myrtle beach are. It was pretty neat, but the money was not crossbred and had the same number of chromosomes, but there was just one part that was different from a normal chimp. It was nifty.

Cool story! I especially liked this statement: "One possible explanation is brain damage from the illness, he said."

I think it nicely sums up the human condition... :wink:

My suspicion is that the monkey ate some mushrooms and it appeared to have a stomach ailment.

The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity. ~ Albert Einstein
