As wind instruments go, folded vegetation seems a little on the primitive side. Orang-utans have been found to blow through leaves to modulate the sound of their alarm calls, making them the only animal apart from humans known to use tools to manipulate sound.
The orang-utan's music, if you can call it that, is actually an alarm call known as a "kiss squeak".
If orangutans are capable of that, it makes me wonder what ELSE they are capable of???
They have a mind that is like a human mind and therefore
they may evolve eventually into a species that is intelligent.
...because having a human-like mind is a pre-requisite for intelligence?
..because fashioning tools to hunt and make sounds clearly is not a sign that they're already intelligent, right?

Hey we can teach them how to serve us, and pick vegetables like in Planet of the Apes, and we can make slaves out of them... But if Obama gets his way and they get the right to vote, they'll still work for peanuts.
