The wild Shirobi-Timesumium does not produce and use tools, but in 2012 "Shiro Timaumium's" Figaro "creates a wand tool from the wooden board to take out food in the net I surprised the researchers by using it. In addition, the Australian research team conducted experiments under the hypothesis that "How can figaro companions learn how to make tools?"

First of all, there are two groups of three male and female groups each. On the other hand, the demonstrator of Figaro, on the other side, showed the researcher reproducing Figaro demonstration using the magnets hidden under the table. After that, we will observe how we act by placing the wand tool used in the demonstration in front of the net containing the nuts. As a result, in the group who saw Figaro's demonstration, both male and female made efforts to imitate Figaro's movement and use a cane, but finally it was able to successfully take out nuts from two male only. Also, the group who saw the demonstration of researchers could not succeed even one.

In addition, you can see the movie you saw by placing a wooden board as a material of the wand tool in front of the two male who can use the cane from the following.

Kiwi keeps his wooden plate with his feet and breaks with Paki Paki with a beakbush.

The wand tool is complete so much.

Insert the wand tool from the floor and draw the nuts. It has also been confirmed that it has a certain degree of creativity distinction to develop a better method because it does not copy Figaro's behavior completely. Therefore, Scholastic Time Geium can learn by watching how to create a tool and develop techniques suitable for himself, so "researchers can talk with each other as teachers" It is.

In addition, you can see the movie that unlocks the five locks which further understands the intelligence height of Shirobi timeimeumium from the following.
