Natasha, a chimp at the Chimpanzee Sanctuary in Uganda, has always seemed different from her peers. She’s learned to escape from her enclosure, teases human caretakers, and scores above other chimps in communication tests. She the chimp that caretakers consistently ranked as the smartest based on only the way she interacted with them. Now, Natasha has a new title: genius. In the largest and most in-depth survey of chimpanzee intelligence, researchers found that Natasha was the smartest of the 106 chimps they tested. "In general, we don’t find any kind of general intelligence factor that can predict intelligence in all areas, but we did find a big variation overall, and this one outstanding individual."
