For some reason the video stops at 2:52 and I didn't realize this AFTER I posted the video.

The video may start again if you click on the Youtube icon, but the video may be very wonky.


Anyway, the rest of the video is about the Capuchin Monkeys defending themselves against a jaguar by throwing rocks off a cliff.

Blue Danube had me looking for one with a bone beating up the other monkeys...the "Skullcracker"

I think some of these monkeys may be smarter than the people working at my local Wendy's. I can only imagine a Jaguar attack would be met by wild shrieks and flying hamburger and feces.

Attenborough
longwinded
attenborough is physically incapable of being boring

Which makes Discovery Channel's decision to always air the version of Planet Earth with deadpan-sounding Sigourney Weaver all the more puzzling.

I asked for the Planet Earth series on bluray last Christmas. Then I found out that they'd replaced Attonborough with Sigourney Weaver. That was one item scratched off my list.

The US blu-ray uses Attenborough's narration.

Colonel Cowlung
Those monkeys should be wearing safety glasses.

Every time they lifted up one of those rocks I squirmed. Don't crush your little toes, monkeys!
Uulanbaatorbaby
Aww, donīt worry These guys are proffesionals!

"Jaguars know it's monkeys at work"

The monkey unions should do something about this. I bet they could quite easily negotiate something more favorable to their organization.

The list of things the Only Humans Do is growing smaller. I think we are left with autotuning and supporting Sarah Palin, neither of which is much to be proud of.

Parrots can autotune

The only thing humans do that is totally unique to our species is the ability to express deep and elaborate storytelling. If I remember correctly, last time I watched something on the topic, it was pretty universally agreed by the scientists being polled that this was our only really unique trait.

We are a species of storytellers.

Which, really, is a fancy way of saying that only we can LIE.

The above man has never lived with cats.

cats are fucking retarded

Not true Camonk.

Those aren't lies, they're camouflage and tricks. Deception isn't the same as lying, BBC! Lying is a linguistic act.

Squeamish
It's like an adorable fuzzy chain gang.

I like sigourney weaver and everything, but what the fuck is the point of replacing attenborough?

What possible gain?

All I can think is that the US distributors wanted a voice track they owned sole rights to-- and I have no idea if that's actually the case or not.

Five for video. My husband noted we should worry if they get footage of capuchins stockpiling rocks up on the cliff for anti-jaguar purposes.

Oh hai predator! *avalanche*

Don't let your helper monkey watch this.

That's some good monkey work ethic right there.
Charles
The ricochet sounds as the nuts rocket away really does it for me. That, and the entire rest of the video.
spikestoyiu
Best part.

Fatback Jack
"They don't even need guns to defend that! All they've got to do is roll rocks down on us!"
Plan B
At 1:50 the monkey says a cuss.
Kumquatxop
five stars for monkey cuss!!!!

Then they discovered that some of the rocks had uranium in them.
