Werner Bollmann - Prankster


It is so obvious: They are our close relatives. When you watch the faces of the big apes you see such a variety of facial expressions which are so similar to ours – joy, fear, anger, love. It’s just wonderful to be with them in the tropical rainforest. Hopefully succeeding generations will be able to experience such moments, too!
