    That's great! I remember when it was about monkey having humor...

    I do like it when my animals don't get the reflection is them and they start acting weird. Makes for a more fun behaviour than just old human narcissism!

    I'm not surprised they can do this. Great Apes are particularly intelligent and the orangutan is 97 per cent similar to humans, biologically!

    After watching Planet of the Apes I feel anyone is possible for our primal cousins. They say humans only use 20% of our brains, what happens when apes learn to use 30-40%? The movie doesn't sound too unlikely to happen in reality now does it?
