"Gathering Stones" - Roseanna Vitro, 1993

I have John to thank for this one.

He spotted a report on the BBC's website called "Zoo Chimp 'Planned' Stone Attacks". It's a really fascinating story!

Although experts suspect that many animals have a great amount of intelligence, the idea of "planning" for future events was thought to be only in the domain of us humans.

Perhaps not...

Funny, I sent that to my ape-loving daughter earlier today! I also reminded her there's a chimp rescue centre near her in northwest Louisiana. But I hope if she goes she stays away from stone throwing chimps!
