Scientists have discovered that chimpanzees use ancient military tactics to make decisions and avoid potentially fatal clashes with rival groups.

The researchers looked at two western chimpanzees (Pan troglodytes verus) communities in Africa climb hills to conduct surveillance on each other, much like reconnaissance missions used by the military. They then used that intel to decide when to enter contested territory.
