In the burning heart of Senegal, at a place called Fongoli, a chimpanzee holding a momentous act.
Strips a branch of its leaves, bites the tip at one point and the tool jams in a hole in a tree, killing a bushbaby. In short, has been manufacturing and using tools for hunting.
Only human beings are supposed to be capable of that. Anthropologist Jill Pruetz takes us deep into the fascinating world of creatures that has been studied for 9 years, giving us exclusive access to not only innovative hunting skills, but their other human strangely.
They spend most of their days in soil, tap to swimming holes and caves to curl up in bed. With the help of experts in our early ancestors and newly discovered evidence of chimpanzee stone age, we take a scientific revealing journey that reveals both about ourselves and about the remarkable Fongoli chimpanzees.
