A clip from a new PBS series called Spy in The Wild shows an orangutan sawing through tree branches. The curious apes apparently learned the skill by watching nearby humans and then borrowing their tools.

Spy in the Wild features look-alike animal robots spy on wild animals in their natural habitats to discover their “natural” behaviors. The series premieres Feb. 1.
