Chimpanzees can use tools, wage war and even walk upright. Now, it’s time to add another ability to that list — NPR’s John Hamilton reports that, given the right tools, they can learn to cook, too. When evolutionary biologists got curious about when early humans cooked up the first meal, writes Hamilton, they turned to chimpanzees, which are biologically quite similar to humans. Researchers created a “chimpanzee microwave” and placed it in a wildlife sanctuary. The device isn’t actually a microwave.
