Chimps plan ahead

New research shows that chimpanzees plan ahead, and sometimes take dangerous risks, to get to the best breakfast buffet early.

The study reveals that chimpanzees will find a place to sleep en route to breakfast sites and risk travel in the dark when predators are active to obtain more desired, less abundant fruits such as figs.

As humans we are familiar with the race against birds for our cherries, or against squirrels for our walnuts and pecans, but this race is carried out amongst competitors of all kinds of species in locations all over the world.
