A number of supermarkets have removed some coconut water and oil from their shelves after it emerged the products were made with fruit picked by monkeys.
It’s finally time to set the record straight: As much as we all love monkeys, Dr. Goodall’s studies and the work of the Jane Goodall Institute have primarily focused on chimpanzees, not monkeys. Now, I know your next question is probably, “But aren’t chimps the same thing as monkeys?” and the answer is, they are not! So what’s the difference and why does it matter?
In a new study, UK researchers established that “lip-smacking,” a typical behavior seen in chimps, happens in the same timing range as human mouths when they speak.
When Jane Goodall first witnessed chimpanzees using sticks to “fish” for termites, she toppled the notion that only humans use tools. Now, a new study has shown groups of chimps fish using their own cultural techniques, which they pass down to successive generations, New Scientist reports.
