One more falsehood from high school biology.

The video below is the opening to the last episode of the Planet Earth series. The first time I saw who was paddling that canoe around I was stunned. Just a few years ago I was being taught that humans are the only tool using animals. It turns out that there are at least a dozen bird species which exhibit complex tool use. Even some invertebrates use tools (maybe).
