Amyumu the chimpanzee trounced a British memory champion in a memory contest. As if they needed to do this test for memory supremacy. All one had to do was ask Aruban officials, suspects in the Natalee Holloway case and those that wish to spin the stories how good monkeys memories are. They have been righting wrongs and correcting lies for 2+ years. Word to the wise … don’t ever question a monkeys memory. Don’t ever challenge a monkey to a memory contest when armed with a computer … some people never learn.
Both chimp and man watched a computer screen on which five numbers flashed up at various positions before being obscured by white squares.
They then had to touch the squares in order of the numbers they concealed, from lowest to highest. When the numbers were shown for just a fifth of a second – the blink of an eye – Ayumu got it right almost 90 per cent of the time.
His human opponent scored a rather less impressive 33 per cent, Channel Five programme Extraordinary Animals will reveal.
