Captured and dissected by the apes in 1968, Dodge's grisly fate furthered the ape study of human evolution. This diagram contains the ape scientists' handwritten autopsy notes.

We, the researchers of the esteemed Ape Ministry of Science, present these findings on the physiology and cerebral functions of humans. The subject of this study, Human Specimen 3408, was a thirtyish, virile male found exhibiting behaviors previously unobserved in like wild specimens from the same area. The subject died prior to capture due to a spinal injury sustained during attempts to apprehend him.

Three other specimens were also recovered alive. The single female exhibits no obvious abnormalities. The first of two males also exhibiting strange behaviors has been admitted for an experimental surgery to be performed on the prefrontal lobe.

The second, now in the custody of Dr. Zira in the psychology ward, was selected as a mate for the female in hopes of discovering whether these abnormal traits can be passed down to offspring. Despite Dr. Zira’s insistence that she’s found “no physiological evidence that humans are incapable of speech,” the lack of a dedicated speech center in the brain makes it unlikely that this creature would be capable of reason or independent thought, much less verbal communication.

This concludes the summary of our findings. Autopsy diagrams of the deceased male specimen enclosed. With the study at an end, Human Specimen 3408’s remains will be preserved and put on display in the Great Hall of the Zaius Museum.
