Here’s a little lesson about bonobos

October 11, 2007 | By | 1 Reply More

This video features bonobo expert Sue Savage-Rumbaugh discussing the bipedal physiology and impressive intellectual capacities of bonobos.   Lots of footage of bonobo behavior in captivity. 

Savage-Rumbaugh mentions that it’s a rare zoo that houses bonobos.  Why?  Because they are sexually active in ways that very much resemble humans.  For most zoos, this is just too much.
