Scientist studied chimpanzees in the Nimbia Mountains of Guinea, Africa the chimps were seeing using the rocks and wooden cleavers to break hard nuts into smaller proportions eat. There have been many instances where a scientists have seen chimps use sharp rocks to kill other animals when they’re on the hunt. The rocks are used as defense weapons when they’re under attack and the chimpanzees use male dominance to show who’s responsible. Chimpanzees in the captive have to find new ways to use the tools that are made. Chimpanzees in captivity ... ... middle of paper ... ...ps making tools on the wild.
Far away from cruel research and taunted to preform in unnatural manners. As Jane Goodall explains, “. . .there is really no justification for forcing these amazing creatures to suffer for our amusement or gain.” Once a rescued chimpanzee is returned to their natural habitat, the glow seen in their presence is unreal. Stopping the industry that uses chimpanzees as entertainment and testing is truly a dire issue and more publicity about their conditions should be broadcasted.
Johanson and his team worked were able to use the advancement of technology to calculate about how old Lucy's remains were. The second film by Johanson seemed to disturb me because it discussed how some believe that all primates are killers and it portrayed this idea in film and in television. I disagree with the idea that all primates are predators and are always hunting harmless animals and destroying things. I understand that some primates must rely on hunting as a source of survival but I believe the portrayal of primates as barbaric in the film was unnecessary. In the second film, the primates were shown destroying piles of bones and throwing large objects.
We can have better insight on animals that have genetic simalrities to humans. Are closest genetic relatives are the chimpanzees and the bonobo species. 98% of their DNA is in common with human beings. Although the chimpanzee is known for its aggressive behavior; the females can be mean as well (Watts, Nuller, Amsler, Mbabazi, Miani, 2006). Male chimpanzees aret he onl nonhuman species in groups of males members that will hunt and kill a member of their own kind.
But that is all we are and ever will be. Animals. Whatever you may think our ancestors were primates, which climbed the trees and still do today. Agreed our IQ and brain is much more developed as is our features but without, we are same as those we lock up in wire cages to be stared and prodded at in Zoo's- the same as those creatures which we test our medicines and cosmetics upon- the same as the wretched creature above- bewildered and hurt wondering why its life is being tortured so and for what. Helpless creatures in our hands and instead or calming and loving them- we crush and break them.
Some theories say that chimps do not actively teach or are taught, but rather learn by observation, trial, and error; as stated in the article Thinking Like a Chimpanzee by Jon Cohen. This article also suggests that some reaserchers do believe that chimps do poses the capability to be taught and understand what they are learning. Tool manufacturing: Chimps use tools in numerous ways to retrieve food. These include stone tools for the cracking of nuts and thin twigs for termite fishing as discussed in both the articles Mommy Training by Nick Atkins and Tool Use in Wild Chimpanzees: New Light From Dark Forests by Hedwige Boesch-Achermann and Christophe Boesch.

Gorillas in the Mist is Anthroplogically Relivant Gorillas in the Mist is based on the autobiographical 1983 book by naturalist Dian Fossey. Fossey is inspired by famed anthropologist Louis Leakey to devote her life to the study of primates. Fossey becomes fascinated with the lives and habits of the rare mountain gorillas of the Ugandan wilderness in Africa. Fossey develops a means of communicating with the gorillas and becomes obsessed with the beasts' well-being. She is appalled by the poaching of the gorillas for their skins.
They both try to take bit of each others kills, but most of the time a Hyena kills its prey, the lion comes and starts eating and the Hyena has to wait. Like the lion hyena tries to take bit of meat from the leopard and cheetah kills. Jackals often annoy Hyenas and try to take bits of meat from the Hyenas kills. The Hyena protects it self in its habitat by the spots on it back used for camouflage. Also if attacked its massive jaws can crush the bones of its attacker and the Hyena is capable of running down and killing an unaided bull wildebeest, 3 times its own weight.
They will eat it with the peal on or they will take the peal off. Researchers in Africa had video camera and had been taping the primates while eating. One day while video tapeing they caught a male chimpanzee stealing a bundle of bananas from the storage tent, and put the bundle of bananas over his shoulder and walked out. The researchers did not try to top the adult male, because they knew that the adult male are very strong and can get violent if they are bothered while eating. These primates also eat variety leaves, twigs and seeds that are found through out the jungle.
