Recommendation: “Life” by BBC

November 4, 2009

From the same team that produced the incredible “Planet Earth”, this nature documentary series focuses on the diversity of life on our planet, but more importantly, how life has evolved in the most unbelievable ways to survive. I found several videos on youtube, and the clip below features the Tufted Capuchins, a type of monkey indigenous to Brazil that over generations and generations, have learned to use an “anvil” and “hammer” to open nuts they’ve been curing for a week. Don’t believe me? Well, I wouldn’t have. Click play below and get ready for your world to be rocked.

It is so cute to see the little ones learn this skill. It takes them 8 years to get it right! It’s amazing to see animals (other than humans) use tools. This must be a huge evolutionary step. Thanks for sharing. Des.
