    Science Gorillas disarm snare traps

    "Today, two juveniles and one blackback from Kuryama's group worked together to deactivate two snares, and how they did it demonstrated an impressive cognitive skill."

    According to Vecellio, field data coordinator John Ndayambaje of the fund's Karisoke Research Centerspotted a snare in the path of some gorillas and moved to disarm it. But Silverback Yuba "pig-grunted" a warning to him, as if to say, "Stay away, we've got it covered."

    At the same time, juveniles Dukore and Rwema, along with blackback Tetero, "ran toward the snare and together pulled the branch used to hold the rope. They saw another snare nearby and as quickly as before, they destroyed the second branch and pulled the rope out of the ground," Vecellio wrote.

    790 The Ticket is a sports radio station down here in Miami and each week The Lebatard Show (afternoon show) has a segment with this Animal Expert Ron Magill who works at Zoo Miami. He actually brought up about how he helped a student with some research about gorillas and football. They can actually be trained to play D-line and go after the football. It was a pretty cool listen.

    I'd be great watching a sliver back sack a QB only to lift him up and then spike him like a football.
