Scientists stunned by fire-dancing chimps

Scientists were puzzled to observe a male chimp in Senegal performing a “fire dance” in close proximity to a raging wildfire in the region. The primates are known for engaging in “rain dances” from time to time, as severe thunderstorms take place, but this is the first time a similar habit has been observed around fire. The dance was performed by a dominant male, while the other members of the gang were sitting a safe distance away, NewScientist reports.
