Horror Science Fiction dystopian mutation

Dr. Trevin’s Traveling Zoological Extravaganza raked in the cash in the early days of the DNA-mutating plague—it was even featured in Newsweek!

So… My mother and I were walking around the zoo and we decided to stop and chat with this ape. It was amazing!, the ape appears to understand what my mother says. They touched hands and all that human/animal love… and when I touch just the shoulder of my mom to tell her that we must be going home, the animal start throwing dust at me and yelling. It was hilarious.
