Sadly, even in today’s world, monkeys have trouble breaking through the grass ceiling. The good news is that they aren’t just laying down for it any more. A study was done that proves monkeys know when they don’t get rewarded for a task as well as their friends… and they are not going to stand for it.

This guy needs to sit down and watch Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes before he triggers a rebellion and kills us all!

Here is the description of the experiment:

Frans de Waal is a Dutch primatologist and ethologist. He is the Charles Howard Candler professor of Primate Behavior in the Emory University psychology department in Atlanta, Georgia, and director of the Living Links Center at the Yerkes National Primate Research Center and author of numerous books including Chimpanzee Politics and Our Inner Ape. His research centers on primate social behavior, including conflict resolution, cooperation, inequity aversion, and food-sharing. He is a Member of the United States National Academy of Sciences and the Royal Netherlands Academy of Sciences.
