Toos make tools AND save them!

Postby Pajarita » Tue May 16, 2017 2:19 pm

We had already learned that cockatoos make their own tools and that other toos would learn from watching the ones that do but now scientist have discovered that they not only learn to make their own tools and use them but that they are also very careful not to loose them! Now, is that smart or what?!
