    Back in the 1990s I met actor Buck Kartalian at an autograph show in Hollywood. He played “Julius” the jailkeeper in the original “Planet of the Apes.” He told me that during lunch breaks, he noticed that all the chimpanzees ate in one group, the orangutans in another, and the gorillas in another. No one ever mixed.
