Fellow members of the primate family have shown the ability to mimic human speech. Rocky, an eight-year-old orangutan who lives at the Indianapolis Zoo surprised his handlers when he demonstrated an ability to create vocal sounds similar to humans. Vocal sounds that had been previously unheard of in other orangutans. Smarter than the average animal, Rocky began mimicking the sounds he heard his caretakers make in order to get treats. He was the main subject of a study—along with other orangutans—conducted by Dr. Adriano Lameira of Durham University who proved that orangutans could create human-like speech sounds.
