Evolutionists will say that this Capuchin has just proven them right. Meanwhile, humankind, in general, is pretty much in danger because guess what, this Capuchin just entered his Stone Age time.
In a video uploaded by visitors, a Columbian white-faced Capuchin was seen holding a small rock in its hand. Most people would think it’s just being curious and will probably throw or hit things with it. But what people don’t know is that this monkey had just sharpened that small rock to form a sharp edge.
And with that very rock, that monkey staged what is possibly animal kingdom’s smartest escape plan.
Initially reported by DailyMail, Wang who was visiting Zhengzhou Zoo in Central China witnessed “the monkey was sharpening the stone, then it started hitting it on the glass. The monkey scared itself away, but it came back to take another look and even touched it.”
Tian Shuliao who is a staff that cares for the exhibit said that “this monkey is unlike other monkeys. This one knows how to use tools to break walnuts.”
“But it had never hit the glass before though. This is the first time. It’s toughened glass, so it would never have got out.”
So, the staff has now picked up and confiscated all the weapons.
Observation of animals that make and rely on tools for survival is not rare. Apes are particularly common, such as chimpanzees that even made spears for hunting, fire hawks that carry twigs on fire to chase out preys and crows that use twigs or even their own feathers.
But this small cheeky monkey actually had the brain to sharpen a rock to break the glass wall. Was it out of curiosity? Was the monkey planning world domination? We’ll never know until we learn their language.
