Flossing monkeys teach offspring



Japanese researchers have found a group of monkeys in Thailand who have taught their infants how to floss their teeth.

A research team at Japan's Kyoto University observed the macaques flossing their teeth with strands of human hair.

The team believe it is the first confirmation that wild monkey parents can teach their offspring how to use tools.
