This clever chimpanzee proves it has the tools for success - by using a hollow stick to hunt for food. The imaginative creature strategically lowers the stick, found in the nearby forest, into a termite mound to try and catch its lunch. It then carefully places the stick to its mouth, and starts to suck the termites up so it can eat them.

Primate cognition: Copy that  Christian Keysers Every time my 18-month-old daughter sees me using a tool, she tries to copy me.

Nature books and arts: 9 February Young chimpanzees watch and mimic an adult as she digs for termites, showing that the ability to learn by observing others is not unique to humans.

Diane Fossey gave her life to help save those animals from extinction.  She makes me cry both for the lives that she saved and the life that she lost.
