In this essay examples of imitation in humans but also examples of imitation in other animals were given, such as chimpanzees. The forms in which observational learning can occur have been included in those examples. It was also argued, by giving examples such as: Ant dipping, potato washing..., that social canalisation, which includes imitation, is responsible for the formation of some sort of primitive culture in animals.
