"Being able to perform cardio exams on our orangs is an enormous benefit for us to learn really about their present health, and then future exams will allow us to learn about how their condition changes over time."

Watch the Sentara Healthcare and The Virginia Zoo share why these exams are important. Thanks for contributing to Great Ape Heart Project!

You're only here for a short visit. Don't hurry, don't worry. And be sure to smell (or munch on) the flowers along the way. #quoteoftheday  https://vine.co/v/O3m5UMQPD9x

Chimp vs. Drone
Tool use and incredible aim take out a drone.
A clever troop of chimpanzees at a zoo in the Netherlands did not like the aerial drone that was spying on their enclosure, so they knocked it out of the sky.
