chimps are better gamers



could you believe a chimpanzee do better in video game than you? a research let 4 adult chimps play video game against 16 children and adults. the chimpanzees performs better than the kindergartners, and one of the female chimps could even outperforms the adults! the researcher said wild male chimps tend to beat up the females when they compete for food, so females usually would need to find less obvious food sources. and that might be the reason why captive female chimps are performing better in some other studies that they are doing in the lab.
