    This scenario could have been used on the Planet of the Apes movies lol...

    Chimps use branches to build ladder in daring zoo escape

    LONDON — Zookeepers say a group of chimpanzees used branches weakened by a storm to make a ladder and escape from their enclosure at the Belfast Zoo.

    Video filmed Saturday by visitors to the Northern Ireland zoo showed several primates scaling a wall and perching atop it, with one walking down a path outside the enclosure.

    Zookeeper Alyn Cairns said trees in the chimps’ enclosure had been weakened by recent storms, allowing the animals to break them and fashion a ladder to escape. He told the BBC “they’re intelligent primates and know they’re not supposed to be out of their enclosure, so got back in themselves.”

    The chimp in this video is sweeping his cage. I wonder if this has to do with an ascension. If we are moving to 4 or 5D then primates would be moving to 3D (level of consciousness) and exhibit human like behaviors. Maybe the Planet of the Apes scenario will actually play-out in the future.

    There was a documentary on the BBC which featured this bonobo chimp:



    He selects food he wants to take in a pack lunch with an app and touchscreen interface. He carries the food in a rucksack to take his son for a picnic. He collects sticks to build a fire, lights the fire with a match, and toasts marshmallows on a stick over the fire.
