Monkeys accidentally kill a robot baby

Researchers put a robot monkey among a tribe of Gray langurs (also known as Hanuman langurs) in India. The monkeys mistakenly think the robot is yet another langur, and start playing with him. Then, accidentally, one langur drops the robo-baby from a tree, and as the robotic spy monkey lies motionless, all tribe begin to grieve and mourn. An amazing video reminds us that the animals are more similar to the humans than we may think.
