Scientists explain the orangutan’s unique approach to problem solving with this example: If a chimpanzee is given an oddly shaped peg and several different holes to try to put it in, the chimp immediately tries shoving the peg in various holes until it finds the correct hole.

Then, after a while, it offhandedly sticks the peg into the correct hole while looking at something else that has caught its interest.
