World-famous primate expert Jane Goodall was at the Houston Zoo over the weekend. Goodall was in town to help dedicate the zoo's new chimpanzee building, which is part of the new African Forest that's set to open in December.

Goodall was the first human being to live with chimpanzees in their natural habitat. It was her experience that helped acknowledge the similarities between them and humans.
