Pretty amazing how much monkey are similar to us. Reuters has this story: A South African zoo is trying to
persuade its star chimpanzee to kick a bad smoking habit.
"Charlie, a grown male chimp and the Bloemfontein Zoo, has been picking up cigarettes thrown to him by visitors and smoking them -- a habit he probably picked up by observing humans, .....He even acts like a naughty schoolboy by hiding the cigarette when staff approach the area."
the zoo said they were:
"determined to help him quit."
I let you comment on this :-)
