Dr. Disotell met Dr. Jane Goodall recently!

At the recent International Primatological Society and the American Society of Primatology, Dr. Goodall was honored with a lifetime achievement award. Bigfoot Bounty judges, Anthropologist Dr. Todd Disotell and Primatologist Natalia Reagan, were there as well. And this is what Todd posted on social media:

FTW, just chatted with Jane Goodall about how as a six year old I wrote her a letter and she wrote me back. And 40 years later I sequenced her mtDNA for a show on Animal Planet and compared it to Frodo to demonstrate how closely related humans and chimps are.
Way to go, Todd!
