Chimp stockpiles weapons.

A chimp in Stockholm, Sweden has been collecting rocks and boulders for his own arsenal to throw at zoo visitors whenever he's angry, which scientists say is evidence of advanced planning.  (Duh.)  He doesn't just pick them up off the ground -- he'll tap the walls in his enclosure looking for weak parts, and break off sections that would make good missiles, and break up the larger pieces.  Fortunately for the visitors, he has bad aim, and anyone he does hit are too far away to be hurt.

CNN ran an article last year about this 'tribe' of monkeys somewhere in India that have actually fashioned spears and raid a few local villages from time to time.
