Chimpanzees like to copy human visitors to the zoo - Ig Nobel prize

Sauciuc, Gabriela-Alina LU and Persson, Tomas LU (2018) In The Conversation
Abstract
How good is your best chimpanzee impression? Go to the zoo and you probably wouldn’t be surprised to see people copying chimpanzees in order to grab their attention. But our latest research, which recently won the Ig Nobel Prize for Anthropology, suggests you are just as likely to see chimpanzees imitating the human visitors.
