While we at FunkyMonkeyLand are firm believers in the fact that humans are just the 5th ape, there are still many out there who haven't been able to share in the warm and fuzzy feelings of knowing that we are all deeply connected with our primate cousins. To help spread the knowledge of primates to everyone, we are going to start a "we are all primates" series, highlighting the blurring line between ape and human.
To kick off this series, here's a great background video on Kanzi, the Bonobo who uses a computer screen to talk.
