The human ego has never been quite the same since the day in that Jane Goodall observed a chimpanzee feasting on termites near Lake Tanganyika. After carefully trimming a blade of grass, the chimpanzee poked it into a passage in the termite mound to extract his meal. No longer could humans claim to be the only tool-making species.

In a fashion similar to human girls, some young chimpanzees seem to play with sticks as if they were dolls. The findings, reported in the Dec. Though these patterns' origins will surely be argued, they add to the constellation of behaviors shared by humans with our closest living relative. Wrangham's group has studied chimpanzees in Uganda's Kibale National Park since the late s, following in the methodological steps of his mentor, Jane Goodall, whose exhaustive, patient fieldwork first revealed that chimpanzees use tools and are more like humans than once thought. The Current Biology paper is based on observations made between and , and represents hundreds of thousands of hours spent trailing individual chimpanzees from dawn to dusk, recording their use of sticks. Kibale's chimps used sticks to probe holes containing water and honey. They used sticks to hit and threaten each other. They played with them.

After the ordeal the alhaji went to drop her and drove off, few hours later she started complaining of stomach ache, she thought it was normal thing, but from what we gathered fews hours later, maggots start coming out from her private parts, her friend tried to rush her to the hospital but it was too late…………. She died before they could do anything. That's a pretty expensive hooker for a monkey with a maggot STD. Makes me feel bad for my choices. How do we know that the maggots were from the monkey? I mean, look at that ass, there could be anything in there. They need to make sure they thoroughly check that thing. Who knows how many secrets are in there. I swear I could see Hoffa's shoe sticking out a little bit. Start New Topic.
By Colin Barras. Humans, meanwhile, show a variety of mating behaviours but often form monogamous couples. Michael Jensen-Seaman and Scott Hergenrother at Duquesne University in Pennsylvania think that it is the chimps — not humans — that have experimented with new sexual behaviours since our lineages diverged. But did male chimps inherit their mating plugs from the last common ancestor they shared with us or did they evolve it later?
