Is This Chimp Instructing Zoo Visitors on How to Free Him From His Cage?

Monkey escape

Chimps are highly intelligent beings. Arguably smarter than some of the humans we know.

So one would think a beast with such a curious mind wouldn’t be so happy about having to live in a cage at a zoo, and would be using its substantial brain power to plot an escape. And you’d be right.

That appears to be what’s happening in the video below. Check out the scene from Welsh Mountain Zoo in Wales.

It certainly seems as if the ape is instructing the zoo visitor on how to open his cage.

But it could also just be that the chimp wants some food, and is trying to figure out a way to articulate that to his new friend. Highly intelligent beings get hungry too. What do you think?
