See vegans even these 'herbivores' kill and eat meat. There not carnivores and still have killer instinct just like we would in the wild.

judgemental humans slightly out of touch with human reality\nthe scale of humans killing animals is great on this earth today\nchimpanzees were once thought to be savage animals, then it was thought they were very peaceful, then it was learned they do hunt- especially monkeys\nthey don't buy those monkeys at a store, it's real\nthey dig babies out of hiding holes in trees with sharp sticks and eat them alive\nthey chase down adults and eat them on the spot\nthere's a reason animals fear us \nwe are the ultimate killers

Forests are so dangerous, unpredictable, cruel. Glad that humans made their own home far away from forests.

Ape shall not kill ape. Unless if it is a white human police officer killing a pavement ape with Jordans on and a fitted cap according to Ferguson grand jury.

every time I see this video show up on my TV it makes me so angry that these so-called scientists and this documentary blatantly lie everything that they're saying was at one time speculated never proven only speculated but since has been totally debunked. The way there they're presenting this is if it is proven and it is not actually been disproved

Wow that was like a football game. It looks like Group hunting was the evolutionary stepping stone to warfare for our common ancestor with the Chimps. Like us it's usually the males that hunt, kill, and go to war for more territory and therefor more resources. I think even Australopithecus lived in large groups or clans and they worked together like Chimps do. Australopithecus looks small for an Ape, but they had their hands freed up to pick up a big stick or throw a rock and there's always strength in numbers. You see Chimps do it sometimes. Now these guys weren't fast but were smart enough to look out for buzzards though. If you can scare off the predator then you can get it's kill and I think we did that as a group.

This was absolutly brilliant

Top notch video, hooked by that fast paced music, police show-style overhead footage and the Scottish presenter's superb commentary. Amazing how chimps can plan and execute an operation like this.

Eric Hiatt
This is about the extent of human collective intelligence as well. Not that coordinated predatory behavior isn't useful, but it's not going to let you conquer the universe, especially when you spend most of your resources engaged in predation when the latent capacities of the collective mind harbor the potential for further reaches. Capitalizing on the predatory evolutionary mechanism, as civilization does, is driven by the mechanism itself. A species that can't develop the collective wisdom to overcome this is doomed. The universe created this behavior. This behavior, however, is not fit to last long in the universe.

They need to be irradicated.

Are they hunting or just messing around? How much meat do chimps eat on average... What is the meat % in their diet?

Awesome catch up, thanks

I'd posit that these chimps are literally smarter than some humans in regard to this skill ..can you imagine humans trying to coordinate this? They'd starve haha

Interesting how they set the trap up. They know the monkeys are more capable of moving rapidly through the trees at that elevation (and able to do so more freely), so they coordinate to counter it.\n\nRed colobus monkeys are also relatively bad leapers, though (for species capable of that form of arboreal locomotion), and have been known to fall. I wonder if the chimpanzees ever exploit this by trying to drive them to places where they'll likely miss a leap.

These chimpanzees demonstrate more planning, coordination, and intelligence than the average teenager playing Team Fortress 2, that's for goddamn sure...

There are a couple of things missing from this snippet. It's not impossible for a chimp to catch a Colobus. Also, it's worth pointing out that, like humans, chimps don't care all that much about conserving resources. They're quite happy to kill more Colobus monkeys than they need for food.

Excellent camera work! Pitty we couldn't see the catch, but seeing the coordination was brilliant! Thank you

And vegans still think they're super bias ideals are morak and ethical, even though these chimps are clearly shown to eat meat from a monkey.
Vyas Chady
The chimps were being watched and recorded at all time, cameras around them and maybe even a drone in the air, by us humans. The chimps had no idea that they were being watched, even though they do seems intelligent, but compared to us humans we are far more advanced that is why we were able to conceal and observe and learn their motions and determine at what stage of evolution they are. Now, take that in for a second, if we were being visited, watched and studied by a more advanced race of neighbours, they could very well be looking at us like we look at monkeys and we might not even notice.
