Orangutan Builds a Hammock

(Video Link)

This clever ape at the Twycross Zoo in the UK reasons that if he stretches a cloth between two overhead lines, he can climb in and enjoy a bed. A colleague at Ape Research & Development then discovers that this bed will swing easily with a nudge.

The mechanism becomes unstable and collapses. But this is, after all, just the proof of concept phase. They'll have a working prototype soon enough.
