I'm not sure if that so much proves that the monkey gets pissed when it's cheated so much as when the items it knows as “food tokens” are taken away. I'd have to see the monkey lose a few “fair rounds” before taking something like this seriously.

Speaking of which, is this a serious scientific study, or just some skit on an animal show?

It's nothing to do with teaching the monkey to play cards :)
It's just some kind of jokey “science” show illustrating what the real study said (the one about food), by using the card game setup as a comical example. None of that is real and it's not meant to be. -as far as I can see.

Look at all the props and the fact that the little creature pays no attention to the card symbols. In order for its reactions to be real, it would have to have a very good understanding of the English language, not to mention the game's complex rules… ;)

I did another experiment at a zoo.

I just made facial gestures at a gorilla. You know, like I'm trying to challenge it to a fight kind of facial expressions and gestures.

It started beating its chest. lol!

Ok. Now thats one of the stupid things I did. lol

Of course, in the days of the Wild West, that monkey would have pulled his gun on the scientist.

Great, What have I done? Now I've got the vision of a monkey with a cowboy hat stuck in my head . . .
