I don’t know how bonobos signal “goodbye”, but based on everything I’ve ever read about them I assume it involves having a bunch of sex
They really are just like us aren’t they??
You know how in a family there is often one branch that’s all gorgeous, highly educated and charming? Beloved by all? That’s the bonobos.
We’re the other branch.
After reading this part, I wondered who is researching where we went wrong, and how to fix it before it’s too late:
“In humans, that (sense of mutual obligation) bears witness of joint commitments,” said the study’s lead author Raphaela Heesen, a postdoctoral researcher at Durham University in the United Kingdom.
Now I’m just imagining bonobos winking at each other going “see YOU later”
Dear Darwin/God or whoever, please don’t let these guys catch politics or religion. That’ll be the end of their civil discourse
In all fairness, we’re a blend of the two. We are just as lovely and sexy as the Bonobos (sometimes). But throwing poo out of spite is fun, too.
