Zoo Monkey Sharpens A Rock, Later Uses It To Shatter Its Glass Enclosure

A clever monkey at a zoo in China almost made an escape for the ages when it sharpened up a rock and used it to smash a pane of tempered glass in its enclosure.

Onlookers at the zoo were stunned to see the industrious little primate work the stone and then put it to use, with shocking success.

According to Metro, Zhengzhou Zoo staff member Tian Shulio said that “this monkey is unlike other monkeys. This one knows how to use tools to break walnuts. When we feed walnuts to other monkeys, they only know to bite it.

“But it had never hit the glass before though. This is the first time. It’s toughened glass, so it never would have got out.”
