That's very legit. Check out his reflection in the water, that would be WAY too hard and tedious to fake with photoshop, trust me.

This is very real. There is a video floating around the internet about these orangutans in africa who use techniques like this one to hunt and catch food.

Has anyone found a Black Oblisk near the primates?   :)

(I wonder how many people will get my reference...)

   If you were to ask this primate (orangutan?) whether or not it was descended from humans, it would probably say, “Of course not.  No human can do what I’m doing or what I can do.  No human could survive in this world without having my special attributes.  After all, I can cling to a tree with my feet; no human can do that.  I am clearly special.  Either God must have made me or I am the most highly evolved species on the planet.  Evolved?  I don't think so; if humans evolved into me, why are there still humans around?”

Good question.  Think about it.

In the late 1800's early 1900's there was an orangutan that ran a train station in Borneo after his owner, the stationmaster, lost both legs in a train accident.

@archaeopteryx - iconic music, made so for popular culture in the latter half of the 20th century by that movie (although no one but geeks and classical musicians - or people into Strauss - no its name ;) )

The beauty of this is that this is also the name of a book by Fredrich Nietzsche. It is kewl on so many levels...

Afrchaeopteryx: if you look where the stick enters the water you'll see its reflection to the right, it's short, but it's there.
