A Japanese study of a chimpanzee mother caring for her disabled infant in the wild has shed light on how humans developed their social behavior. The first-of-its-kind study by a team of Kyoto University researchers was published Monday in the online edition of Primates, an international journal of primatology. Born in January 2011 in a chimpanzee group in Tanzania’s Mahale Mountains National Park, the female infant was “severely disabled,” exhibiting “symptoms resembling Down syndrome,” according to a summary of the team’s findings. The researchers said there have been only a few case studies of congenitally disabled chimpanzee infants and no reports examining how a chimpanzee mother in the wild copes with a disabled infant.

Michio Nakamura, an associate professor at Kyoto University’s Wildlife Research Center who was involved in the study, told The Japan Times on Tuesday that the research could help solve the riddle of how humans evolved into social animals. “One characteristic of human society is that people reasonably take care of the disabled and those in vulnerable positions,” Nakamura said. “It’s interesting to observe a chimpanzee looking after a disabled infant in terms of finding out when such sociality occurs, as they are the closest modern species to humans.”

“One characteristic of human society is that people reasonably take care of the disabled and those in vulnerable positions,” Nakamura said.

Yet Republicans and Tories can undo all of that in a single term of office.

If you ever muster up the courage to step outside of your hovel,you will see the real world out there.And not a computer screen.

Also I made no mention of skin colour in my post.So I take it that you don't class black British people as British? You dirty filthy racist pig.

You showed your true racist colours there again Cachulin. Black British people are as British as white British people.

But that's nothing new for you as we've caught you out in the past when it comes to racism.

Never claimed that Black British people were not British people, so not sure why you are being further an idiot now inventing things after i showed you were talking utter nonsense to quill

Shady Said British Race which implies anglo-saxon, celtic or scot origins.
Blacks may be 'British' via citizenship but they are not 'British race', and really 'British race' is not a thing.

Besides the obvious that there is no evidence of anything shady said, in fact all the evidence suggest the opposite, Britain's low rate of immigration and lack of foreigners has caused economic weakness that is making it difficult for the UK to remain relevant in the 21st century.

@op

i think this is quite interesting and should not be unexpected really. part of the problem is previously the animals have been studied in captivity or semi captivity and therefore the natural social structures are much weaker due to the animals being under stress, just like prisons are not an accurate portrait of human society.

Have to disagree with. You rightly point out as British is a concept and thus only exists as a social construct and has only been around for just over 300 years. Where blacks have been living before this time in this country, so they would very much be or should be seen and classed as British. There are some white men from yourshire that descend to Black Africans at the Roman times.

but is that racially British?
like i said not really a thing since it is made up of several races.
Like Aussies but over a longer time scale. the UK is Ultimately a nation of immigrants.
