July 22,
Monkeys usually alternate between upright movement and walking on all fours. A picture in the Maariv daily on Wednesday showed Natasha standing ramrod straight like a human. The picture was labelled humorously: The Missing Link?

Two weeks ago, Natasha and three other monkeys were diagnosed with severe stomach flu. At the zoo clinic, she slipped into critical condition, veterinarian Igal Horowitz said.

That is rather odd. I found a picture too.

Brain damage......

Maybe monkeys are evolved from a creature that stood.

It's an interesting story.
Interesting to consider that brain damage may have caused possible human ancestors to begin walking upright..

Guys, remember that Lamarckism has been disproved.

Brain damage isn't a genetic change any more than cutting your finger off represents a genetic change. If evolution proceeded along Lamarckian lines, then yes it might explain some things. But this kind of "walking upright" won't be transmitted to the offspring any more than cutting your finger off will result in your descendants having short fingers.
