Researchers have recently observed chimpanzees in Senegal making spears and using them for hunting. Not just finding potential spearlike sticks lying around on the ground, but actually removing the leaves and sharpening them. This is apparently the most elaborate example of toolmaking by a non-human yet observed. Some speculate that this image may offer clues as to how the toolmaking originated. As yet there have been no observed instances of apes learning to ride horses or shoot rifles. But only time will tell...

Ignorant bastards, those chimps. They think they know everything. They'll collapse under their weight of their own perceived wisdom once one of them asks why they are here.

Rumor also has it that they've learned to play rudimentary musical instruments.

Great - we've got the monkeys coming at us from one direction, and the robots from another. we'll just have to convince them to fight each other, and then we can mop up the survivors
