Sweet pokers

Ugandan chimps use honey dip-sticks made of twigs or vines to raid the nests of African and stingless bees. Native Americans are also known to have used similar techniques.

From a scienceblog post on the co-existence of stingless and African bees in a Ugandan nature reserve. Hat tip to Rufus.
