Read the Water Babies and you will find an esoteric joke by Charles Kingsley on how or perhaps not we  humans are related to gorillas. Prof: Richard Owen, the Founder of the Natural History Museum said that we have a hippocampus or as CK jokes, a hippopotamus in our brains and gorillas do not. Kingsley was amazingly up to date with the scientific life of his time
