Everyone knows that smoking is bad for you. They also know that drinking too much can get you in trouble. It may even get you sent to rehab. Zhora the chimpanzee found that out. Wait. Chimpanzee??
Yes, chimpanzee. Zhora is a Russian chimpanzee that used to work for the circus. He couldn't hold his temper though and the circus decided to send him to the zoo to live. The zoo is where he learned to misbehave worse. Who would have thought a zoo was a worse influence than a circus? Not me.
Anyway, Zhora learned about sex there. He even fathered several baby chimps. He also learned how to drink alcohol there (maybe he was shy and needed to loosen up first...) and to smoke cigarettes there (an after-the-act-is-over thing?). The zookeepers said he would "pester the passers-by for booze"...Just what kind of zoo are they running there?? The zoo goers have alcohol in their possession? They certainly do things differently in Russia!
Needless to say, Zhora became addicted. He's now been sent to rehab in Kazan. I didn't even know they had rehab for animals. Hopefully they can help him get the monkey off his back :)
