DAILY PHOTO: Chimp in a Cage Reading a Book at the Amritsar “Zoo”

So many questions:

1.) As it’s clearly not a real ape, why the need for the cage?

2.) Why did they anthropomorphize this particular primate? (i.e. Is it just whimsicality, or is it a statement of some sort?) [Most of the creatures are in animalistic poses–though often not to scale.]

3.) Did the chimp start off reading huge (Tolstoy / Dickens / Ayn Rand style) books, or did it have to work up to them?
