New Delhi: Just like humans, apes too possess the ability to recognize if someone else's beliefs are right or wrong.
Something of similar sort has been experimented by researchers when they made a person wear a King Kong suit and recorded a chimp's reaction, with another human actor participating in the act.
In the video, the human watches King Kong hide an object in one of two boxes. When the person leaves, King Kong moves the object to a new location.
When the person returns to find the object, the apes looked intently at the original spot in anticipation of the person searching there.
Even though the apes knew the object had been moved, they understood that the human thought it was still there.
