I just love the individuality of all those faces. Original image found in Yahoo article, Chimp Genetic History Stranger Than Humans’. And for a nice piece on animal subjectivity, see Brandon Keim’s Being a Sandpiper: The Science of Animal Consciousness.
Update: Image credit to Ian Bickerstaff. Saw that in the LiveScience article on this research. Here’s the link to his website. It appears that the individual photos were taken of the apes at Ape Action Africa. From Bickerstaff’s site:
all of the individuals featured in this series live at mefou park sanctuary in cameroon, run by the british n.g.o. ‘ape action africa’, and each one is a victim of the illegal bushmeat trade that threatens the long-term survival of many primate species. each individual will have witnessed the killing of several family members during the event that led to his or her capture and many will have suffered abuse at the hands of his or her captor prior to the good piece of luck that led to them being rescued by ape action africa.
