Apes are one of my personal favorites. They challenge me to wonder. You look into their eyes and can see that you share a common past and probably most of the same common feelings. At the same time, they can easily push your imagination too far, and we easily personify them more than we ought to. They are close cousins... but they are also a little bit alien.

See some orangutan photos.
