Koko The Rescued Gorilla Plays Guitar With Legendary Member Of Red Hot Chili Peppers
The Red Hot Chili Pepper’s Flea is not only a rock legend, but also a huge supporter of animal rights. The rockstar paid a visit to the Gorilla Foundation in Woodside, CA, where he had a jam session with an unlikely partner. The Youtube video below shows Koko playing the guitar as Flea watches in the background.
The video was posted to the Red Hot Chili Pepper’s official YouTube channel and it quickly went viral. It turns out playing guitar is just one of the incredibly intelligent animal’s talents. Since birth, Koko has been immersed in the English language and sign language.
Koko’s caregiver explains that the gorilla knows about a thousand signs from what she calls “Gorilla Sign Language.”
This isn’t the first time that Koko has made headlines. She became a sensation on her 44th birthday as her love of kittens and a strong maternal instinct led her to adopt two kittens.
