PostSubject: Orangutan hunts for fish using a spear   Fri May 23, 2008 11:44 pm


This photo, of an orang-utan that is fishing by using a spear, was recently made in Borneo, it's the first time humans have ever witnessed non-human apes hunt in such a manner.

This orang-utan was not able to catch a fish in the water yet, even though he tried for some time. He eventually used the spear to steal a fish from local fisherman.

Although he still, obviously, needs practise, this could be the next step in evolution for his species.
