Apes are smarter

In nature some species
produce millions of young
so many that a few will survive
even though they are uncared for.
Others produce small numbers
and care for them carefully
to help them all survive.
Same in farming –
sheep and chickens produced
on factory farms in large numbers
so that a few get through.
On small specialist farms
careful care brings all to maturity.
Oddly, human beings seem
to have adopted the first
strategy, not the second.
