Chimps at Busch Gardens

Found these handsome fellows at Busch Gardens Tampa Florida.




Chimpanzees make tools and use them to acquire foods and for social displays; they have sophisticated hunting strategies requiring cooperation, influence and rank; they are status conscious, manipulative and capable of deception; they can learn to use symbols and understand aspects of human language including some relational syntax, concepts of number and numerical sequence; and they are capable of spontaneous planning for a future state or event. Research from Wiki.


Thanks for stopping by,

Craig Glenn

Neat! I thought the pics of the coot were amazing. They gather on the upper Mississippi in the fall by the zillions and I guess I never saw them so close up before
