చింపాంజీ మనిషి ఒకే దగ్గర పెరిగితే ఎలా ఉంటుంది ?

Kellogg was inspired by an article about the wolf-children of India whom everyone assumed lacked intelligence, but he believed they simply adapted to their environment from such a young age.

But since no one was eager to volunteer their own human infants to test his theory, Kellogg flipped the idea around and brought Gua, a 7-month-old chimpanzee, into his home. He would raise her as a "sister" to his 10-month-old son, Donald.

The unusual siblings were treated as similarly as possible.

Kellogg regularly recorded them completing basic developmental tests to compare their learning progress.

Gua developed human behaviors much faster than her "brother," testing ahead of him in tasks like using a spoon or cup and responding to simple commands.

But she was less independent than Donald when it came to human interaction, often clinging to Kellogg for comfort and affection.

The experiment was meant to last for 5 years, following the growth of each child, but after just 9 months, Kellogg decided to end it.

He was disappointed by Gua's inability to communicate using human language.

Donald, on the other hand, had begun mimicking her chimpanzee sounds, such as her "food bark."
