Monkey Reacts To Being Paid ‘Unfairly’ Science Experiment

Popular educational and inspirational TED talks recently posted this excerpt from Frans de Waal’s full speech, and now it is trending again. While discussing moral behavior in animals, Frans and his team conducted an experiment where two monkeys would receive the same payment of a cucumber slice for completing a task. At first they are both satisfied with their cucumber.

But when one of the monkeys is given an ‘expensive’ grape instead, his counterpart is disgusted with his measly cucumber. The implications of the experiment are quite obvious. (via)
