|Bonobos like to chill|
Yes, Bonobos are awesome. They're a species of crazy smart ape. You are not an ape, you are a human. Although humans share the primate family with apes, we are not apes. It's been millions of years since we were not human. Evolution is easily misunderstood. We are derived from apes, but we are not apes. We're not monkeys either. We don't even share our biological family with monkeys.
We are very very very distantly related to tiny fish, known as Chordata, but that does not mean we are fish. We were never fish. Humans are always human, and that is that. But what about Bonobos? They are apes. Very very smart apes. They're hominids, like us, but they belong to the Panini tribe, where as we belong to the Hominini tribe.
It is, technically, correct to say that Bonobos are sandwiches (I think so, anyway). When referring to these intelligent beasts, I always hint at the fact that they are sandwiches. I suppose you could say they belong to the 'many sandwich' tribe, and we belong to the 'one sandwich' tribe. Or we are 'manly sandwiches,' it's really up to you.
Any who, enough with the rambling. Let's talk about Bonobos! Immediately we run into another problem. Not only are Bonobos a type of sandwich, they are also a brand of pants. This is dramatic. Luckily, Bonobos makes some good pants. But I'm not here to talk about pants or sandwiches, I'm here to talk about the magnificent capabilities of this almost-ape creature. Actually, they are apes.
Bonobos are Endangered, so please do not hunt them. At first glance, these things are almost... human. They can pass a self-recognition test. They also communicate vocally.
What, so they can hold a conversation? No, not quite. They don't speak the same way we do. Bonobos communicate more like dogs than humans. But they still speak vocally, which is impressive. We can teach them sign language (like many apes), and we have taught them to enact 'push-button' conversations with us.
