Gorillas Photographed Using Tools*

Gorillas Photographed Using Tools
One gorilla used a long stick to test the depth of a pool of water before wading into it. Another used a stick to help search for food and then as a bridge over a muddy puddle.

“This is a truly astounding discovery,” said Thomas Breurer of the Wildlife Conservation Society. “Tool usage in wild apes provides us with valuable insights into the evolution of our own species and the abilities of other species.”

*I wonder if they were Canons or Nikons.
