Recent discoveries show that hundreds of animal species use tools. Crows of New Caledonia, for example, use twigs to remove insect larvae, sea otters use flat stones to break open zeeklitschelpen or ears; weefmieren leaves interwoven with threads that their larvae secrete. Until recently, it was thought that the tools of different people of the tools of animals because the latter are not transmitted or collected. Several long-term studies on animal populations have proved the contrary. Tools of animals can be a part of an animal culture. For example, some chimpanzee populations their own technical tradition: they break open nuts with stones. Based on these observations, this comprehensive documentary built around three central questions: how the tool using animal changes the world? And, by extension, the others? And how the tool changes the behavior of the animal?
