It's so true. Even amongst orangutans. The great apes and even monkeys are incredible problem solvers. I've been amazed at what they can accomplish with only a stick. #AlmostHuman
CURIOSITY is something that sets great apes apart from most other species and among great apes chimpanzees are the most curious Apes Like Us.
That curiosity, in captivity, like the sanctuary at Mefou can test the will of staff as well as a visiting photographer. Nothing is 100% safe from the mind and meddling fingers of a chimp. Ape Action Africa's staff had had more than one head-scratching challenge over the years as a curious chimp has gotten themselves into or out of something the humans never imagined.
