Chimpanzee problem solving

A brief, interesting clip from National Geographic's "Ape Genius" documentary, demonstrating problem solving skills in chimpanzees, by using water as a flotation aid to retrieve a treat from a narrow tube.

This experiment was conducted at the Max Planck Institute in Leipzig, Germany.
