Monkey See, Monkey Do

This story linked on is about imitative behavior in newborn monkeys. Like human babies, infant primates learn to communicate by this type of social interaction.

The complexity of life is astounding, and studies like this show that the illusion of some kind of separation between humans and the rest of the animal kingdom is just that - an illusion.

Monkeys are people, too!

...and people can also be monkeys!

"That monkey ain't so special...see?"
