It’s only a matter of time

For years, researchers have known that gorillas in captivity will use tools. But they have always assumed that this behavior was learned from their human captors. But researchers in the Congo have finally observed wild gorillas using sticks for tools. The article calls the find ‘important, but not surprising’.

You realize this means that it’s only a matter of time until they learn to knit.

    half a dozen gorillas in a yarn shop couldn’t be too much more difficult than my 2 year old

    They need to learn to spin, first. Unless you’re willing to take half a dozen gorillas on a field trip to the yarn shop. 😉
