These crows are making hooks to help them get food… something that even chimps don’t do. 🙉

  1. I think you need to be clearer about your statement on chimpanzees.. certain chimps have skills related to their environment and feeding strategies.. they use miniature spears/sticks and can also chew a plant into what is effectively a brush.. so it is not necessarily that they cannot form a hook, but may have had no need to, or merely discarded it as an inappropriate solution.. it is largely irrelevant to compare species in this manner..

  2. As Louis Leakey once said of Jane Goodall’s Chimps using tools for getting out ants, since the definition of man was at that time the toolmaker, we either have to redefine man or call chimps (and now it seems crows) man.
