Animal language: Fresh evidence

Mostly I focus on politics and law, but I'm interested in most everything, especially advances in scientific knowledge. This article in the London Times says that "the putty-nosed monkey in Nigeria ... sometimes communicates by combining sounds into a sequence that has a different meaning from any of its component calls, an ability that was thought to be uniquely human." Now that's freakin' cool.

(via Drudge Report--the guy's a right-wing hack and his "scoops" usually aren't worth the electrons they're displayed with, but his links are always worth checking)
