The Thoughtful Animal

Chimpanzee Curiosity (Video)

The awesome videos just keep on coming. Check out this one from National Geographic.

A juvenile chimp and her mother set out to do some fishing for termites in Congo’s Goualougo Triangle, but the juvenile spots something interesting – an apparently not-so-well hidden camera – and investigates. I think it’s so fascinating to see how the chimp approaches and investigates a new object. First by visually examining it, then by poking with a stick, and then by feeling it with her hand. Unfortunately, I can’t embed it here, so go check it out on the Nat Geo site!
