Too wonderful to be real.
12 November 2018 | by vishwas_pSee all my reviews

This is a story that revolves around the strongest alpha male chimp we have ever known, which tries to hold the leadership of a territory by displaying its strength and extraordinary intellect.

It's not the story of a fictional 'Caesar' but the real life of a chimp called 'David'.

The episode reminds me of our own past. These chimps like the rest of the species on Earth exhibit, the desire to take power, love for their family, strength to fight against the rivals and their need to leave a legacy. They battle against themselves and with the nature to make their life possible and comfortable.

As always the story is well portrayed with the narration of David Attenborough. The crew has wandered around a particular troop of chimpanzee for about two years to bring us this masterpiece.

The episode also emphasises on the threat that's being faced by the chimps. Just like them, the desires of humans for gold is destroying the habitat of chimps and the West African chimps are already endangered.

You will never look at the chimps like you used to after watching this. They are so much like us OR I should say we are so much like them. It's no wonder that we share about 98% of our DNA with them as the closest relative.

Do not forget to watch!!
