Every night I go to bed thinking how I can help change the world and inspire people to love our beautiful wildlife and ecosystems! I’d legit take a bullet for any animal at any day and anytime that’s just how much I care for them ! Idk what kind of fire god set in my soul for animals but the love is deep and real ! I was placed on this earth for 1 thing and that’s exactly what I’ll do for the rest of my life ! Let’s all love one another and save the planet together as one ☝️ 🌎 @kodyantle TAG A ANIMAL LOVER ❤️
“In less than a week online, the video has already racked up over 1.6 million views as people are wowed by the ape’s Instagram savvy and dexterity. It’s unclear how much time the chimp spends on the phone — it seems to be quite a lot, given its familiarity with Instagram — but there’s at least one prominent voice speaking out against the video: the world-famous English primatologist Jane Goodall, who’s considered the foremost expert on chimpanzees,” reports Peta Pixel.
