In 1977, researcher J. Michael Bedford concluded human spermatozoa could not penetrate the Perivtelline space into the chimpanzee cytoplasm therefore making the creation of a humanzee impossible. However, a group of Guyanian geneticists, biologists and medical doctors have overcome Beford’s findings to create the first chimpanzee/human hybrid who they call Madea.
“We know we will take much ethical criticism for the creation of Madea, but this is a huge step forward for science,” Dr. Gillespie said. “She is a sweet girl and we’re curious to know the division of human and chimpanzee traits. Will she be able to talk?”
Gillespie says they plan to sell their research to other geneticists, governments and corporations in hopes it will allow humanity to create more hybridized animals.
