Thread Name: BS: Who came first, the chimp or the bonobo?
Subject: RE: BS: Who came first, the chimp or the bonobo?
I've often asked myself this very question. Based on species distribution it would seem that the chimpanzee would be second on the scene suplanting and surpassing the bonobo but the bonobo is definitely of a higher social order and a more behaviorily complex animal and this would argue for a higher niche in the evolutionery higherarchy. I'm glad you asked the question. Cheetah, here Cheetah, get Boy, it's time to go. Ahhhahhhhahhhhahaaaaa!
