I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry when I heard about some Dutch chimpanzees moving to Edinburgh Zoo and changing the noises they make to communicate.

It seems as though it’s not only humans who have to learn “English” in order to communicate in Britain.

I wonder if Edinburgh Zoo could send some chimpanzees to Amsterdam, or to Hilvarenbeek where the Dutch chimpanzees came from, to see if they can learn “Dutch” too. I would love to know what happens.
