Nut-cracking Monkeys and Random Creatures of the Deep

One of my favorite scenes of the BBC Life Documentary shows the Capuchin Monkeys of Boa Vista, Brazil using stones as tools to crack open a nut.

I love the Blue Planet, Planet Earth and Life documentaries. Enjoyable study/work breaks.

Deep sea stuff is crazy too and at least directly related to what I am studying.


  1. The Blue Danube was very fitting background music for the first video. Those monkeys are pretty smart. That reminded me of the opening scene in 2001: A Space Odyssey.

    Holy crap, the oceans are insane! That looked like a pair of maroon flashing technicolor balls...

  2. WOW that discofish in the second vid totally grabbed my attention.

    Bloodbelly Comb Jelly ftw!

  3. Wow those are amazing! I love the last video!
