Humans believe that they are at the top of the food chain because they can outsmart any living being on this planet - While that may be true to some extent, animals, especially chimpanzees that share 99% of our DNA, are no dummies either.

In the video filmed by National Geographic, see how quickly and efficiently the chimp figures out how to get to a peanut that lies at the bottom of a fixed clear tube. But before you watch it, see if you can figure out the solution and prove to yourself and the world that you are . . . . . . Smarter than a chimp!

    Hmmm! Pretty fascinating! I also thought like the chimp did, although I would've brought the bowl itself or cup my hands and brought it to the tube, or of course, do what the chimp did! Also cool how chimps share 99% of our DNA!

                  This brings me back from a movie I watched-MVP- and it included a chimp that was really smart! He could read lips and do sign language!
