BBC: Young female chimps upstage males (15-Apr-04)
It would seem young female chimpanzees take their studies a little more seriously than their male classmates, a study in the journal Nature has shown. Females learn from their mothers how to gather termites much faster than males - who prefer to spend more of their time playing.

But the females are apparently totally crap at reading maps and throwing, and they have an irrational fondness for cushions, curtain tie-backs and decorating.
