Even Chimps Have Mid-Life Crises


Scientists have found that chimpanzees and orangutans wellbeing drops during midlife and grows again as they get older. These apes can grow to be as old as 50, and around 27 and 28 years old they animals begin to decline. Researchers believe it’s due to them being so close to humans in their make up. So these chimps are going to start buying sports cars and dating way younger girl apes.

      @Ziggy Stardust they think, speak (coco) & invent!  BTW, humans eat shit (scat) & throw shit (prisoners in jail systems @ correctional officers).  I truly wish ppl would THINK before they just say & do dumb shit!
