Chimpanzee with a GoPro

Kimbang the chimpanzee came into foster care when her mother was killed by poachers. She's now four years old and training to live in the wild on her own. Her caregivers put a GoPro camera on her to monitor how she selects which foods to eat, but what they got was a dizzying ride through the rainforest canopy. And selfies. 

The perfect soundtrack for this is the song "Son of Man" from the Disney movie Tarzan. After all, Kimbang is learning how to be an ape just like Tarzan did. This clip is from a three-part PBS series Animals with Cameras that will air on Wednesdays starting January 31st. (via Laughing Squid)
