Geocache Description:

POTA (Planet of the Apes) - A series of caches paying homage to the original Planet of the Apes movies and characters. The coordinates listed are NOT for the cache location but are for where you might park to start your trek.

The cache is a small camo-taped screw top container. Congrats to Lifeguard1 for the FTF.

 


This cache is called POTA - Dr. Zaius. Dr. Zaius is a fictional character in the Pierre Boulle novel Planet of the Apes, and the film series and television series based upon it. (In Boulle's novel, his honorific was "Mi", a term in the Ape language.) He is an orangutan and although given a minor role devoid of dialogue in the novel, he becomes the main antagonist of the story in the subsequent film adaptation. Zaius was portrayed in the first and second films of the series by actor Maurice Evans, in the later television series by Booth Colman, and voiced in the animated series by Richard Blackburn. You can read more about this character and the film at this website Planet of the Apes Wiki
