A Bonobo That Can Cook Dinner


During an outing in the woods, Kanzi the bonobo, who was being studied by the Ape Cognition and Conservation Initiative collected wood, broke it up, and placed it neatly in a pile before striking a match to light a fire.


Along with the common chimpanzee, the bonobo is the closest extant relative to humans.

If that wasn’t impressive enough, he then signalled for marshmallows from his keeper and toasted them on a stick. Kanzi not only learnt to communicate but built tools by himself.
