Chimps Learn to Collaborate!
Related animal: Chimpanzee

This is an article about new research looking into the origins of collaboration and how animals pick individuals to work together with. Researchers developed a system where chimpanzees would get a treat only if two of them pulled on ropes at the same time. After a while the chimps picked up on which animals were the best to work together with and would always chose to be their partners. They would even chose to work with the more collaborative chimps over the alphas of their group.
