Baboon metaphysics

Nicholas Wade at the Times on how baboons think. In particular there is lovely slideshow and video, watching those juveniles prancing across the water reminds me that for some years in elementary school I was very certain that I would grow up and study primates for a living...

(One of my favorite books of all time is Robert Sapolsky's wonderful A Primate's Memoir--only parts of it are so sad that it is almost unbearable...)
