Chimpanzee Eating Ants
Many Chimpanzees that you see on comedy TV shows are dressed up like humans and sit at tables and eat food. To be honest the Chimpanzee only eats certain food and mostly that is vegetation or fruits. But, as you will see from this entertaining video, this chimp has a taste for ants!!
Chimpanzees are omnivores, meaning they eat both vegetables and animals. Insects are a common snack and source of protein for chimpanzees. Here you see a juvenile in the Goualougo Triangle using his arm hairs to mop up the ants crawling on the tree trunk so he can enjoy the tasty treat!
