IF- LINKED


As many of you probably know, I am an animal lover at heart... this piece came to mind when I read the IF prompt LINKED this week.
Humans have about 98.4% of our DNA in common with chimpanzees. This genetic information has provided insight to human-relatedness to other great apes such as the gorilla. Humans are more closely related to chimpanzees and gorillas than either of them are to orangutans.

Super...terrific! I haven't been here for a while (sorry.) You've been doing lots of amazing things. Congrats on the books, etc!

This post reminds me of one I did for the word "Theory" for illo Fri. If you search the word 'theory' in my posts it will come up. I did a gorilla too ;)

I took the survey for your daughter. I chose a dog and a cat...I want to live with both!
