The Cycle Begins Anew

Spiral out.
Keep going.

From Monkeys Devise a Tool to Break Out of Zoo in Brazil

Early Tuesday morning a group of eight capuchin monkeys made a daring escape from a Brazilian Zoo, in which the leader of their little coterie used a small stone tool to break the lock on the monkey pen and make a mad dash for freedom. At the time of the writing of the linked article, half of the group had been recovered, including the eldest capuchin CearĂ¡, who zookeepers believe to be the mastermind of the operation.

According to Zoo coordinator Gladis Dalamina, this isn't the first time the monkeys have tried to make a bid for freedom, though this is the first time they have illustrated such complex problem solving skills. Monkeys using tools in the wild, like cracking hard nuts with stones, is not a totally uncommon occurance. But what CearĂ¡ and his friends did, using a stone to break and remove the wholly unnatural human device of a lock on a cage, is unprecedented.

Admittedly, the TreeHugger article gets a little sentimental for my taste, understandably so considering the source of the article. But none-the-less, this is an absolutely wild fucking story. Planet of the Apes style.

Get Ready.

It Has Begun.
