This video is from last year, but it's relevant considering how often we talk about chimpanzees and monkeys doing human things!

This video was taken by animal trainers...watch as the chimpanzee scrolls through Instagram as if they downloaded the app themselves.

As you can see, the chimp is viewing content that may be of interest to chimpanzees, but you can also see that they are choosey about which posts to click on. 

Chimpanzees share up to 99% of their DNA with humans, and this video seems to show that they have the same tendency to get sucked in by a screen.
