Edit: Found this old post collecting dust in my archives so I thought I would publish it despite being written 2 years ago since I haven’t updated this website for awhile.

The Great Ape Trust of Iowa are finding that primates have a more flexible audio repertoire than previously believed.

Sometimes the things you see on the Flintsones are not so far away from the truth!
