Chimpanzee Memory Test (2;53)

What really sets us apart from our cousins? Our wonderful memory?

No, not that, either.

This video illustrates that our ape cousins far exceed us in short term memory recall skills. A chimp is shown memorizing numbers with remarkable accuracy at lightning speed.

An amazing bit of footage from the National Geographic documentary "Human Ape".

Damn dirty apes!!!
