(quoted in  "Bonheur d'être singe" Frans de Waal) :

"...dans le domaine de l'attachement, de l'affection, du refus des conflits, les bonobos sont très intelligents.... Si les bonobos sont pacifiques, c'est parce qu'ils peuvent reconnaître la valeur des relations sociales..." .

In the wild, bonobos live in large groups and roam the forest together in search for food.

They are very sociable. l

They build nests in the trees where they nap and spend the nights. They bend small trees to create platforms of their joined branches.
