10. I often wonder if she's aware that she's "captive"..
I know she's leading a good life, but when I see her it kind of makes me sad.. She would probably not have lived as long in the wild, so I guess it's a trade off..

To see her able to communicate is amazing.. It's too bad they have never helped her have a baby :(
