“If a biological trait is common in almost every human, then it evolved for a reason. Almost everybody has the same response to the “uncanny valley,” or in other words we are made uncomfortable by things that look almost human but not quite.

So if you think that chimp is going to be a cute pet, better think twice. Even if you raised it since it was born, they’ll turn on you at any second. A disfigurement roulette waiting to happen.
