Zoo #12 – Chimp

A chimp is not a monkey;
A monkey is not an ape,
But all that stands between them
Is biologist’s red tape.

This is a recurring theme for me.  We are discovering so many new species all the time, all of them one molecule different to the last.  If we find seven thousand different sub-species of the common fruit fly, that will compensate for the death of the last white rhino, right?  We are creating with a microscope whilst destroying with an ignorance the size of a planet.  No laughing matter?  I don’t know what else to do…
