Chimps in West Africa are engaging in some never-before-seen behavior: they’re spying on rival gangs by tactically moving to higher ground to get a better view. This is an age-old tactic of human warfare, but it’s never been reported in chimps before. Researchers say this behavior shows off the cognitive abilities of our closest living relatives, and it might even highlight the origins of human warfare. So next time you’re feeling down, just remember that even chimps are capable of tactical warfare.
