Zoo puts humans on display
ADELAIDE, Australia, Jan 9 (Reuters Life!) - An Australian zoo has put a group of humans on display to raise awareness about primate conservation -- with the proviso that they don't get up to any monkey business.

Over a month, the humans will be locked in an unused orang-utan cage at Adelaide zoo, braving the searing heat and snacking on bananas. They will be monitored by a psychologist who hopes to use the findings to improve conditions for real apes in captivity.

Audiences can vote for their favorite "ape" via mobile phone text messages, in the style of reality television shows, and at the end of the month, a "super human" will be selected to represent the zoo.

"They're completely mad," said one visitor to the exhibit, as the humans, who are allowed home at night, played up to the crowds and checked each other for imaginary lice. ...

"they're really not doing very much"

Well here is an idea to spice things up a bit. Put the "humans on display" in with the lions. That will certainly generate some excitement.

Oh, make sure the "lions" are just people dressed up to LOOK like lions before attempting this.

Good distinction between rain forest and jungle, Mike. I live in a jungle and I'd much prefer a rain forest....better yet a pine forest.

Oops, I meant to say rain forest.

Will the zoo-keeper now be an orang-utan or a gorilla?

This would give substance to the old joke about the monkey in the cage asking, a la Darwin, "Am I my keeper's brother?"

Another media hype. its just a stunt to make awarness so you donate money to our zoo using a phyco to make it look different .Its more a comedy act where they throw bannana and have a barbq cooking bannanas instead of meat. Its all a stunt for outside the world to think different.cheers.

Exhibitionists likely will be first in line for this sort of thing.

If you like people-watching, the park or shopping mall are free.
