Hanabiko " Koko " July 4, — June 19, was a female western lowland gorilla known for having learned many hand signs from a modified version of American Sign Language ASL. Koko gained public attention upon a report of her having adopted a kitten as a pet and creating a name for him. It was reported that Koko understood approximately 2, words of spoken English, in addition to the signs. As with other great-ape language experiments, the extent to which Koko mastered and demonstrated language through the use of these signs is disputed. It is generally accepted that she did not use syntax or grammar , and that her use of language did not exceed that of a young human child. Koko was the 50th gorilla born in captivity and one of the first gorillas accepted by her mother in captivity.

Koko's Guide To Austin is the ultimate pocket-sized guidebook to eating, drinking, and exploring Austin, Texas.
