Yesterday, BoingBoing posted this eerily quiet video of a chimpanzee mother reacting to the death of her infant in the wild.

The video was taken at the Chimfunshi Wildlife Orphanage Trust in Zambia and it shows some relation between humans and chimpanzees in the way that they both react to death and mourning. Seeing the mother stay by her deceased infant’s side is so tragic and yet you can almost see the gears turning in her head as she thinks about what has just happened in front of her — the indecisions, the movements, the sitting and waiting…it’s just so human.
