This video made my day so much better! 

We are calm about our reflection in the mirror, which you can not say about animals. They react very strange to the mirror. Someone starts to bark, someone jumps on a mirror, and someone and does not understand what is happening.

American psychologist Gordon Gallup was very interested in this issue. It was very important for him to find out what animals really see. Can they recognize their reflections? He applied two or three spots of red paint under anesthesia to the face of a chimpanzee.

And then he offered a mirror to the animal. To learn about changing its appearance, a monkey could only by reflection. And she succeeded.
