Bonus: here is a picture of Kanzi the bonobo roasting a marshmellow.

I'm not seeing no bonobo...

Oh no! No bonobo! Ohmy

There is a super interesting video about birds using tools here:

Now, now, young lady. I'll have you know tool use in animals is serious business.

Not so much. There has been some backlash from the scientific community at large. All it shows is that chimps like cooked potatoes. Potatoes are not a part of their diet in the wild and they get along just fine without cooking.

Who on earth would make such a mistake? There's a handy metal handle at one end and a wooden bit for poking at the other.

By the way, if you're looking for someone to do repairs at your place, I'm available for hire.

I have a few crows and magpies in my backyard. they got rid of my dew worm problem but now they are stealing my strawberries from the plants I just bought. I want to tame them. I haven't even begun looking at how plausible this is (too much GOT right now, I think this may be normal ha ha). I'm also considering a messenger pigeon. Pretty sure both might be illegal but it can be my back yard secret. I have huge coniferous trees at the end of my lot, they love it there and I love them.

I'd also love a pet octopus but I live inland. Tongue

Feed them at the exact same time every day, leave the food out for like 15 or 20 minutes, then remove until the next day. Once they are on schedule, you can slowly stand closer and closer as they eat. Eventually you can feed them by hand.

Try not to stare at them at first, let your eyes wander a bit. They will invite eye contact eventually.


Thank you sensei! I will try my best.

Now, what to feed them?

I have read of a girl doing this and the crows eventually left her presents (usually shiny objects they found).

The crows around here like peanuts best it seems... did you look at the link I posted a few posts back? It's about some very smart cousins of the crow... they are smart!

True story --- I dated a woman for a short while -- who did not know the difference between a standard and phillips screwdriver.

And -- I asked her to hand me a 1/2 inch wrench -- and she couldn't tell which one that was..........

Her occupation? High school teacher.

That's when I realized that we're doomed as a race..
