    A five-year-old monkey at an Israeli zoo started walking exclusively on her hind legs after recovering from a serious illness.



    Natasha, a black macaque, almost died of a severe stomach flu about two weeks ago, say officials at the Safari Park zoo near Tel Aviv. She had difficulty breathing and her heart wasn't functioning properly.

    However, her condition stabilized and she was released from the zoo's clinic.

    Workers at the zoo say that's when she started walking upright exclusively. Monkeys usually alternate between upright walking and moving on all fours.

    A zoo veterinarian says he's not sure why she has altered her behaviour, speculating that the illness could have caused brain damage.

    Other than walking upright, the vet says Natasha's behaviour has returned to normal.

    EDIT: Forgot to post the Source.

    Kind of looks like Bigfoot.

    We know so little about the brain. ..... All I can say is I hope I don't get the stomach flu and end up on all fours half the time.

    Maybe her stomach still hurts and it feels better when she is walking upright?


    Does this mean, we as humans, evolved from brain damaged monkeys?

    She's been found at last.

    As for evolving from brain-damaged monkeys- that kind of puts a damper on the whole "evolve for greater reasons" theory.

    things are quiet until hitler decides he'd like to invade russia
    so, he does
    the russians are like "OMG WTF D00DZ, STOP TKING"
    and the germans are still like "omg ph34r n00bz"
    the russians fall back, all the way to moscow
    and then they all begin h4xing, which brings on the russian winter
    the germans are like "wtf, h4x"
    -- WW2 for the l33t

    However......that would definitely depend on what your idea of greater would be.

    Finally, the Anna Miller mystery is solved, but it would seem BigBoab missed out on the finder&#39;s fee after all.
    Will you be resuming her pursuit Clocker? One does like to see the occasional happy ending.

    Relax Clocker. Sorry but that is not Anna. She has been nowhere near Israel in the last nine months. If you dont believe me, wait till I claim my expenses.

    P.S. I forgot to add. She has never been &#39;upright&#39; in her life.
