Most of us are guilty of us spending too much time on the internet, leaving no room for actual social interactions.
Looks like it's catching up with animals too. Don't take our word, just watch this video of a chimpanzee scrolling through an Instagram feed like it is no big deal.
The video was originally posted by animal conservationist and influencer Mike Holston and garnered more than 1.5 million views.
From there on, it started doing the rounds on the internet and has an estimated 6 million views.
A chimpanzee using Instagram. Fascinating. pic.twitter.com/4nXCXlAc69— Steve Stewart-Williams (@SteveStuWill) April 25, 2019
Now, while some people find it fascinating, others called it disturbing.
Its easy to dismiss this as a chimpanzee using Instagram but he is deliberately scrolling through the images and selecting ones that he finds appealing. The level of intellect required to complete what are basic tasks to a human is nothing short of extraordinary in a primate. pic.twitter.com/HmBRDQcNmY— Wayne Smith #FBPE (@waynesmith1971) April 25, 2019

Hey if you see that viral video of the chimpanzee using Instagram, maybe don't share it. And read this instead to understand why it's harmful: https://t.co/pX9UFaFzqi— Rosie Spinks (@rojospinks) April 25, 2019
