Something strange is happening in the forests of Africa. Chimpanzees are doing things no one has seen them do before: they are having pool parties. But that's not all. At a site called Fongoli, in Senegal, they have also invented a remarkable way to catch a meal. They are making spears and hunting, just like our ancestors.

Fresh steaks and a swimming pool? How long until they fire up the barbecue? After all, the great apes—chimpanzees, orangutans, gorillas, and bonobos—seem so much like us, it's hard not to feel a deep connection.

Watch the show here. one hour in 6 parts

Edited to include the google vid ... I apologize to those outside the US who couldn't access the PBS web site

I really shouldn't give the Prince of Darkness any more ideas on how to survive the pole shift. Guess I messed up the heaven on earth thing. My bad. Apologies! No hard feeling, mmmkay?

This could give us the premise to rethink all of our origins. Perhaps sentience begins far after a "logical" brain. That only after a certain part of developement can a group become self aware. But most of all this could explain the unexplained items that we find in prehistory that seem to out date what is expected to be found, I am not saying that it was apes or monkeys. But perhaps we ourselves are more ancient than we want to acknowledge.

Wow, thanks for that....What an incredibly fascinating series, revealing some amazing things about apes... S&F!

Sometimes I wonder if there is a secondary evolution of apes to man that is happening right before our very eyes. And if that is the case, and apes are evolving into man for the second time (or maybe even the 100th time?), then I have to wonder what are humans evolving into?

I believe we give our primate relatives less credit than is due. Or any other living being for this matter. The only reason humans are so advanced is we figured out how to educate the young with knowledge passed down from generation to generation.

If the monkeys started passing down more and more info, I believe they would be perfectly capable of feats such as us humans have experienced.

And the big question is, what if they have been passing this memory language system of knowledge from generations down, but we are not advanced enough to notice it.

This is nothing amazing, if anything its a step in the wrong direction. The most likley situation is that this is learned behavior from humans, the day a chimpanzee starts cooking its food is the day you know the earth has gone completly down the #ter

Even when America is on its death bed it won't share a video clip! This country disgusts me. Take it with you to the grave!

That's the exact thought I had reading this post! Humans left their habitat, more or less, and built civilizations, so now the apes get an opportunity to advance and fill the niche we left.

As humans are evolving so to are "the animals".

Dogs are smarter.

My dog is doing stuff that if I told you - you just wouldn't believe.

Humans live 80-90 years and have I believe a genetic memory so do animals.

The entire planet is evolving.

I don't know what people are laughing at. While we've had our gaze fixed on the Illuminati/Bilderberg/NWO an even greater evil has been stirring in the rainforest:

That whole banana peeling thing was nothing but a diversion.

curious as how this website is sponsored by exxon mobil a rockefellar company, wonder if there're trying to tell us something.

Frankly, i do not trust the idea that chimps never sat in the pond. And it is known that great apes can use tools. It is different thing to hunt with a spear then to crash a nut between two rocks, but i did not see a spear hunt, just chimp with a stick.
So far i saw nothing extraordinary, but i have to admit that i watched only beginning of the video. If there are phalanxes of marching chimps with spears, consider me wrong.

They might be like you but they're not like me. This story will undoubtedly prove to be BS driven by an agenda.
