www.newscientist.com... nutcracking-monkeys-find-the-right-tool-for-the-job.html

They say a bad worker blames his tools - but it's hard to imagine a capuchin monkey using such an excuse. The crafty little monkeys of Boa Vista in Brazil are often seen using heavy rocks to crack open large palm nuts. Now, researchers say they are experts at choosing the best stones for the job.

In field experiments, Elisabetta Visalberghi of the Institute of Cognitive Sciences and Technologies in Rome, Italy, and colleagues have shown that the capuchins actually test their stone hammers before use.

If a monkey thinks one stone might not be up for the job of cracking the sturdy nuts - say, because it is too light or too likely to crumble - it will not waste time with it. Instead, the capuchin will move on and find another stone more suitable for the job.

Other than chimpanzees in western Africa, and a recently discovered group of long-tailed macaques, the capuchins of Boa Vista are the only non-human primates known to routinely use stones to crack open their dinner.

Seen this before and thought it might interest you, Some of the monkeys even take hot sonas. Could this be the beggining of the next New World Order. They better keep their eyes on those monkeys.

Pretty cool.
Smart little monkeys.

Reminds my of this story I saw a few months ago.
Zoo Chimp Makes Elaborate Plots to Attack Humans



- A male chimp in a zoo in Sweden devises complex ways to attack human visitors.
- "Santino" hides rocks under piles of hay before people show up to prepare.
- At first, the chimp "plays it cool," then launches his surprise attack.


Damn dirty apes!

End of rant.......mods dont seem to be on the case of people plagiarizing stuff anymore, ie, copying text from eternal sources and claiming it is there own...by not using the proper tagging {ex-text} Turning into GLP more and more each day

Link doesnt work, though googling the first 4 paragraphs does link back to New Scientist where it was plagiarized/copied from.
