    Nope, it was that guy's persistence. And the way everyone got involved in trying to revive the puppy — and surely that was a very young pup.

    I have thought of this experiment:

    To have a group of one species of animals [ie apes] in a large room that has a glass window to another room. In the other room are humans dressed as apes enacting specific daily routines as apes would do with the intention of getting the real life apes to a] gawk at the costumed humans and b] re-act to acts of ie stealing; bullying; aggression; eating; playing etc.

    When the real apes view the fake apes ---will the real apes cheer/laugh at/scold/heckle/distract etc the fake apes?



    [Btw, I once posted this in another forum and it was deleted by the admin ---cuz I guess it was beyond their thought and it seemed bizarre]

    I once recently saw this on a Stupid Videos TV program:

    William Lishman ... in 1988, he made ornithological and aviation history by leading a flock of 12 Canada geese that had imprinted on him; bonding to his plane as if it was a mother goose. Then, in 1994, he and partner Joseph Duff together led the first aircraft migration of 18 geese from Ontario to Virginia — a trip that later became the basis for the Hollywood film Fly Away Home.

    **
    Well, I’m a commercial photographer, and back in 1988 my friend Bill Lishman met a guy on a local lake here who was teaching geese to follow his boat, using the boat as a photography platform. Bill wondered if you could get the geese to follow an ultralight too. It took him a while to figure it out, but he finally did it. Later, we realized that this could be useful for endangered species. We’ve been pushing the idea ever since. We did our first crane study with sandhills in 1998.

    How do you make sure that the cranes don’t imprint on you?

    We work hard to minimize human contact and give the bird as natural an experience as possible. Only people in costumes get near the birds, which are raised in very isolated areas. So by the time they arrive in Florida they have never seen an uncostumed human. It’s a very strict protocol and very difficult to do — it complicates everything.**

    a female great ape using a saw to skilfully divide a branch in two.

    The talented ape uses her right hand to hold the tool and her feet to grip the tree branch like a vice. She even blows away the sawdust to inspect her work like a true craftsman.

    She previously learnt this skills by watching builders at work in the region. When she spots a robot orangutan copying her behaviour, the great ape immediately becomes more competitive.

    I often wonder how much different our relationships would be with our dogs and cats if they too had opposable thumbs.;)

    Something that might interest you:


    Yes, that was a shark that was "operated on". The pregnant shark was already dead when she was found.

    I wouldn’t know the first thing to do in that situation. Glad that guy did.

    Haha. That's true. His methods do seem a bit questionable.
