Almost everyone has heard of chimpanzees, gorillas and orang-utans, but the fourth great ape,
the bonobo, remains a creature of mystery. Only separated as a species in 1929, the bonobo lives only in the Congo River basin in the Democratic Republic of Congo, with probably only 10,000 animals left in the wild. It differs from the chimpanzee in both appearance and behaviour, but has been much less studied. Bonobo society is more egalitarian and altruistic than that of chimpanzees and also less violent, with females playing a more influential role.From a distance, bonobos look like ancient, hairy ancestors of humans. In fact, they are our closest relatives in the animal kingdom, closer even than chimpanzees.
