An astonishing video shows a chimpanzee getting to grips with Instagram . Aping the behaviour of humans the world over, the primate is seen handling a smartphone and scrolling through images. At the start of the clip, which was shared on Reddit this morning, the chimp is watching a video of a fellow monkey swinging on a branch. Unsurprisingly the video has been widely shared on social media. The chimpanzee is also shown picking out a video of a snake and another chimp hugging a human. People the world over have commented on the stunning demonstration of animal intelligence. One user, Wayne Smith, posted: “It’s easy to dismiss this as a chimpanzee using Instagram but he is deliberately scrolling through the images and selecting ones that he finds appealing. “The level of intellect required to complete what are basic tasks to a human is nothing short of extraordinary in a primate.” Another quipped: “This chimpanzee has a better grasp of how to look at pictures on Instagram than 70% of the people in my parents’ generation.” And one user wrote: “They gave Instagram to chimpanzees, we are done for.” It is not known where or when the footage was taken.
