Another Naked Ape…

– – Don’t look, Ethel! Humans have been referred to as “the naked ape” by Desmond Morris among others, and here we present something unusual; a naked chimpanzee.

Guru, the naked 20-year-old chimp at India’s Mysore Zoo, lost all of his hair to alopecia, a condition that also affects humans.  Although he’s undergone treatment, nothing so far has helped him grow hair.  Chimpanzees are very accepting of hairless chimps, however, and actually seem more accepting of physical differences than many humans are.

Another lesson that the animal kingdom may teach homo sapiens!

    Don’t worry, Guru. According to Colin Mochrie, bald guys make the best lovers.

    Not all of them. The ones in Beverly Hills go to Balducci’s on Rodeo Drive, and buy… “Mo’hair” suits.
