– The Ape Sign Language
Many of us have watched the “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes”
and have noticed that the apes’ sign language was much better
than the original “Planet of Apes” movies (1968 and 2001).

teaching these “ape-actors” some signs. As a result we
were able to follow some of their signed phrases.
