Handprint of gorilla, artwork from Dr Henry Faulds's Guide to Finger-print Identification, 1905. Faulds, a Scottish scientist, was an early developer of fingerprint analysis. Shown here is the print from the right hand of a young gorilla, Chloe, kept at the Zoological Society's Gardens (now London Zoo) in Regent's Park, London. Her palmar creases can be seen in this print. For a comparison of this print with a human handprint, see image H200/410.
