What abiotic things does the organism interact with?

Chimpanzees are very intelligent creatures and often use many abiotic things. This is closely related to eating. For example chimps use chewed up leaves as a sponge to soap up water, and then drink it. Chimps use a blade of grass to eat termites. They stick the grass into a opening in a log and let the termites crawl on it. Then they slowly pull the blade of grass out with the termites on it and eat them off of it. Sometimes tree branches are uses to make holes in a termite pile, making more holes to access termites inside. They also use a rock as a hammer to crack open nuts with hard shells.
