In this world gone mad, we won't spank the monkey; the monkey will spank us.

So, will the definition of "human" finally dis-include the "only species to use tools" aspect once and for all?

We really have to get used to the idea that we're animals, and hardly unique ones at that.

Although I do appreciate having thumbs.

In their next evolution, they will fling themselves into the air and rain poop down upon their foes.


Monkeys now have air combat capabilities.

I don't know about anyone else, but after seeing the headline... I can't remember the last time I so deperately wished there was a video linked to this story.

We know other species use tools, although in this case, they didn't. They didn't "catapult", they just jumped from branches that had gotten too close to the fence.

Fpppt!

This little gem taught himself how to open a crate in a car, then the car door, then toddle around an
IKEA parking lot to become the media darling he is now.
