Robin Williams Meets KOKO

Robin Williams paling around with Koko, a gorilla who is fluent in American Sign Language. Watching a gentle Williams interact with Koko, at one point, right after Koko takes off and wears Williams’ eye glasses. Suddenly, Koko starts signing “tickle” to Williams. Koko wants nothing more than to get tickled by Williams, of course 
Williams obliged.

The photo above was actually taken by Koko in 1978 (when she was just 7), and the photo she's snapping is of herself aiming the camera at the mirror. The photo was of such high quality and significance that it was chosen to be the cover photo for the October 1978 National Geographic article featuring Koko
