"The apes were presented with two banana pieces: a smaller one, which was always reliably in the same place, and a larger one, which was hidden under one of multiple cups, and therefore the riskier choice."

"The researchers also found that the apes went for the larger piece –and risked getting nothing at all – no less than 50% of the time. This risky decision-making increased to nearly 100% when the size difference between the two banana pieces was largest."

Oh, now, really. C'mon eh?

Doesn't anyone else see at least TWO things wrong with that? You can SNIFF out one at least. Sounds like hokum to me.
