[SN] Female chimps play with 'dolls'

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Quote:
A new study finds that young females in one group of African chimpanzees use sticks as dolls more than their male peers do, often treating pieces of wood like a mother chimp caring for an infant. In human cultures around the world, girls play with dolls and pretend that the toys are babies far more than boys do.

This is very cool yet so funny! So in theory male chimps should be able to play video games right? I wonder what their fav. game would be...
