We can only infer what Koko is thinking by what she communicates to us in sign language coupled with her facial expresions, body language  and context - but the same is true of humans, isn"t it?   So email us your best guess, and we"ll let you know ours.


PS: Regarding the 2/6/06 KokoPix, where Koko was clapping at the tall buildings she saw in a ViewMaster, many people guessed that she was associating the slides with the movie "King Kong." However, Koko has never seen the movie King Kong (old or new versions); it"s much too violent for Koko"s PG temperment. So her clapping overhead was probably just to indicate to Penny that she was looking at something tall. Good guess though!
