A bonobo is a species closely related to the chimpanzee. Although they look rather similar bonobos and chimpanzees are vast apart regarding their behaviour. While chimps prefer war and cannibalism, bonobos love to cuddle and have sex with everyone even their children.

Bonobo behaviour was brought out from obscurity by the famous Dutch behaviourialist Frans de Waal.
