18-year-old chimpanzee Yuhui, who lives in a zoo in southwest China's Chongqing municipality, was filmed spending about 30 minutes washing its keeper's T-shirt, with soap and a brush, reported on Dec. 4.


Yuhui's keeper said that after he noticed Yuhui watching him do the laundry, he decided to put out a T-shirt, soap and a brush to test whether the chimp had learned how to do the laundry by observation.

Chimpanzees are considered the most intelligent animals in the world. According to the keeper, besides washing clothes, Yuhui can also mimic other human movements, such as making a heart shape with his fingers and standing on one foot.
