Stop the presses – a “super chimp” has been discovered that is three times smarter than his peers – he learned 308 words in about 3 months!
Now a breeding program has been initiated to produce a super-super chimp. (well I have no evidence for this but it is the obvious super-secret thing to do don’t you think?) Via force breeding and back crossing to select for certain traits that we consider markers for “intelligence”
You heard it here first!
On a related topic, why doesn’t anyone breed dogs for personality rather than how they “look”?
million dollar idea: spend your life breeding dogs for personality, create a dog so personable that even the super chimp would want one as a pet.
