Some other books i have written are:
Influence on Society
1.) I discovered that cimpanzees are omnivores not carnivors.
2.) I discovered that cimpanzees are able to make tools.
3.) I concluded that there is no definate line between humans
and animals.
My message to the world
Where tansinia is
When asked about what I believed in this was my response:

I don't have any idea of who or what God is. But I do believe in some great spiritual power. I feel it particularly when I’m out in nature. It’s just something that's bigger and stronger than what I am or what anybody is. I feel it. And it's enough for me."
One Iccident

Gary Larson wrote a comic about two chimpaneezes
groming each other. One finds a blonde hair in the others
fur and says, Conducting a little more 'research' with that Jane Goodall tramp?" When this was published I was in Africa and when I
came back my lawyers of the Jane Goodall Insitute sewed Gary Larson. Now any shirts sold with the comic on it go to the Jane
Goodall institute. This was a little disapionting but I soon forgot about it.
Childhood Story

One day my mom kicked me out of the house
and told me to play outsideWhen I was little I
was curious about how chickens were able to
lay eggs. So I spent five hours in the chicken
coop studying them. My curiosity as a child
made me curious as a child.
World War 2 was happening when I was a young kid
