Chimps Eat Crabs

Scientists have observed wild chimpanzees eating crabs, and hypothesize that aquatic prey facilitated brain development in early humans. 

I have seen diets based on what chimpanzees eat, and those are never complete.  None of them include insects.  Apparently, they're also missing crabs, tortoises, and monkey brains.  Let's say the diets are designed for charm rather than scientific accuracy -- although if you like the premise of eating like our close relatives, you can always adapt as we learn more about them.
