Chimpanzees are so Cute

Chimps, monkeys, and gorillas are cute. That's what we are supposed to think. We've seen chimps at circuses and fairs, on TV in the movies, and they're always doing the darnedest (and cutest) things. Occasionally we're given a truer view. They are wild animals. They can't really be domesticated. They are strong and unpredictable. They are also fairly sophisticated hunters. I stumbled across this video of a group of chimps attacking another group of chimps and eating one that they've killed. It isn't very graphic, but it is disturbing. It can't be embedded, so you will have to link to it if you're interested in watching. It is fascinating. And there are other videos of chimps on the attack.

Oh yeah, they have big sharp teeth too. Other than all of that, sure, they're cute.

Just like nature is beautiful, as long as you have a nice comfortable home to return to when you are done enjoying the beauty of nature.

The problem with nature is that it is so...natural.
