Chimps prefer human ape impersonators to food

Chimpanzees get excited by seeing humans dressed as apes.

A new study has found that the primates could even become so engrossed in watching people in chimp suits in movies that they would become distracted and lose interest in their food.

Fumihiro Kano of Kyoto University, Japan, revealed the news in the Current Biology journal.

The expert explained: "We were giving juice while showing the videos to them, but some of them even forgot to drink juice and stared at the movies!"
