Released Lab Chimps Get Their First View of Sunlight [VIDEO]


If you think you’re having a lousy day, buck up. It’s about to get better.

In this German-language news clip, lab chimps who’ve been caged indoors their entire lives venture outside for the very first time, reveling in the unfamiliar sensations of warm sunbeams and total freedom of movement. In other words, things the rest of us ingrates take for granted.

You don’t need a German interpreter to tell you what’s being said in the voiceover — the jubilant hugs exchanged by the chimps transcend any language barrier in existence anyway.
