    If they develop banana cannons, they'll soon care more about protecting their right to have those stupid cannons than about anything else.

    We evolved the ability to learn from others and that's why we appear so advanced. We stand on the shoulders of giants and, because of that, individual humans don't have to re-invent the wheel or agriculture or whatever. Maybe one chimp developed the startegy of spearing smaller animals and the ability is diffusing out as others watch & learn. With the procedure being refined as it's passed along. That's culture.

    Bruce is right on. They've already mastered the banana hammock.

    Don't dogs bury bones for later?

    That would be a behavioral instinct. Birds migrate. Squirrls hibernate. Insects shift life cycles and forms, and also hibernate. All the same. Behavioral shifts do not represent cognitive processes- rather they are intuitive
    that makes no logic

    Ohh ok.
    It seems weird that only birds would do this. What about elephants and the bones?

    Birds do not only do this- so do we, and it is plauible other mammals do it as well. The study i posted is the first evedence among non-human animals, not the last
