Fruity Chimp Goes Green

10/28/2008 12:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Meet Pavlov's chimp, who probably can recycle better than you.
Miru: Click to watch
Here's the drill. Miru, a five-year-old primate at the Tama Zoological Park in Tokyo, likes fruit juice. She's learned how to deposit money in a juice machine, drink up, deposit the can, which triggers another coin that allows the chip to drink another can of juice.

The chimps are allowed to drink til they explode.

Uh, they did a similar test with cocaine about 30 or 40 years ago. Chimps/primates can figure out pretty quick
what needs to be done to get a reward like food, juice or cocaine. I wonder how much Yen was spent on
discovering something that was already known?
They should do an experiment to see if chimps can be trained
to go through the steps to make and then smoke Crack Cocaine. Now that would be impressive. Not very useful
but impressive.
