        Learned Behavior in Capuchin Monkeys

Part of the episode “Intelligence,” this video shows monkeys learning to use an anvil and stone to access their primary food source. Teaching tips ask students to explore learned behavior, their understandings of culture, and more generally how scientists observe animals in the wild.
