Zoo’s Visitor Sees Monkey Sharpening A Rock, Later It Uses It To Shatter Its Glass Enclosure

We all know the theory of evolution, but it is in doubt whether have we seen a monkey stepping up and understanding the basic concept of a tool, a sight that we would see in movie screen but hardly in real life. At some point, some of us wonder if monkeys were smarter than humans,


well! It makes us think more after the incident took place at Zhengzhou Zoo in Central China.

Visitors witnessed a cute Columbian white-faced Capuchin using a sharp stone to break the glass wall of its enclosure, once the glass wall cracked, Capuchin scarpered by seeing the chaos.

As per Daily Mail, one of the visitors said that “the monkey was sharpening the stone, then it started hitting it on the glass. The monkey scared itself away, but it came back to take another look and even touched it.

Zoo’s staff Tian Shuliao told the media that “this monkey is unlike other monkeys. This one knows how to use tools to break walnuts. When we feed walnuts to other monkeys, they only know to bite it. But it had never hit the glass before though. This is the first time. The glass is strong, so it would never have got out. After it happened, we picked up all the rocks and took away all its ‘weapons’.”
