Video: Watch This Orangutan Talk Like a Human

Humans don't like smart ape."  Those fateful words, signed by an orangutan in Rise of the Planet of the Apes, kicked off what would become a revolution.  In the real world, a different kind of revolution may just have been set in motion by an orangutan named Tilda. She's not looking to overthrow humanity though. No, she's just looking for food.  Tilda is a nearly 50-year-old orangutan who lives at the Cologne Zoo in Germany. Captured on the island of Borneo in 1967, she spent her teenage years in the possession of Swiss endocrinologist Hugo Steiner and then the next 30-odd years in a zoo owned by the Steiner family.
