Chimp Builds Fire And Toasts Marshmallows

To promote their Monkey Planet series, the BBC published this eye-opening clip on YouTube. Incredibly, a smarter than the average Bonobo demonstrates how to build a fire using matches. Of course, he’s been taught how, but it’s impressive nonetheless. 

What does a monkey do after building a campfire? Why, the same thing any Homo-sapien would. Roast marshmallows, of course!

Honey Badgers Escape From Zoo Enclosure

The BBC reports that honey badgers are much more clever than they appear. Zookeeper Bryan explains in the nature show how he locked two badgers in a pen with a double locked gate. Astonishingly, the two worked together to break free from the enclosure. 

Bryan had no choice but to create a honey badger Alcatraz. But that still couldn’t stop the badgers from escaping!

Dog Saves Owner’s Life By Smelling Her Cancer

Dogs are always watching us, reading our body language. They know when we’re happy, playful, going for a walk, or even the vet. 

The BBC Earth reports that Max the dog actually saved his owner Maureen from cancer thanks to his watchful behavior.

The amazing dog wasn’t acting himself. He seemed unusually depressed and aloof. Maureen thought there was something wrong with him, but really there was something wrong with her. She had a lump in her breast that even the doctors couldn’t detect. 

Thankfully, because of Max’s behavior, she had herself checked and had the lump removed. Max immediately became his happy old self again. 

This video telling the incredible story is actually from January, but it is trending now more than ever.
