'Planet of the Apes' could very well become Reality

And we though that we were so smart. The fact of the matter is, that if we don't get up to speed, Chimpanzee's might soon overtake us in evolutionary terms.

As proof, according to the BBC, Chimpanzee's in Senegal have been observed making wooden spears and hunting other primates with them. You heard that right they are not using those spears for fishing or hunting other little jungle animals. They are using the spears to hunt other primates.

Jill Pruetz, assistant professor of anthropology at Iowa State University, was one of the authors of the report which claimed the find. Pruetz said and rightfully so that "the finding could have implications for human evolution."


For some reason this brings back memories of a Tim Burton remake.

Cheers,
Christian
