Chimpanzee Rides A Segway

This video has to be one of the funniest I've seen so far. It's also one of the most interesting. The chimpanzee in the video not only gets on a Segway and rides it, but he then begins to learn how to control it after a few tries. It's almost five minutes long, but you'll definitely want to watch the whole thing.

Even though most of us think the idea of chimpanzees doing human things is just hilarious, it also shows how intelligent these creatures really are. Scientifically, chimps are our closest living relatives, and humorous videos like this show us reasons why that is. Watch in fascination as the chimp, through a bit of trial and error, learns how to maneuver this scooter around the field.

  1. Amazing how quickly the chimp learns! In the meantime a barrel of laughs.

  2. Funny, but is this what stopped production?PBS Nature had a lovely feature about monkeys last night.
