Chimpanzees using spears to hunt bush babies

These things are so smart.

Unfortunately for the males, however, the females seem to be far superior tool hunters.

I can definitely see a good story out of this. Maybe something like The Ghost People /shameless plug, but with extinct non-human hominids.

The males failing and then beating the tree kind of remind me of some of us procrastinators in this last contest. Meanwhile our 90k word writers are the females, effortlessly and gracefully fashioning and using the tools.

Thanks for the charity. This really isn't a topic of interest to most people on a writing hobbyist website. Maybe if it were furies instead of chimpanzees...

Yeah it is pretty weird how most people don't go out of their way to watch animals die, I just can't explain it.
