Bonobos learning about fire, stone tools, and Pacman

Bonobos, according to some scientists, are the closest animal relations to humans on the planet. The last time I wrote about them, politics reared its ugly head. This time, I simply present a video of them acquiring language, making and using stone tools, and playing with fire (oh, and a golf cart and pacman too).

To me, the trippiest part is watching the little dude making stone flakes and using them.

Nothing to say beyond that -- the presentation awesome enough without commentary.

Enjoy learning more,
