Episode Summary

This episode reveals that monkeys are indeed very similar to humans. Monkeys are smart because they are innately curious and therefore tend to learn new things. But there's another reason. Like humans, they pass information to their young. So while young monkeys discover their surroundings on their own, they learn how to get food, communicate, use tools, and recognize a family member from older monkeys in the clan. This culture makes monkeys truly fascinating.
