Mad Monkey May – 11th

When researchers offered the Japanese macaque sweet potatoes during research in the 1940s, the monkeys didn’t like the taste of the dirt on the veggies, so they washed it off. Now, generations later, washing food has become a learned behavior. No other monkeys in the world are known to wash their food before eating.
