TED Talk Challenge #17: Evolution’s gift of play, from bonobo apes to humans
December 14, 2011 Leave a comment
I love apes. It probably has a lot to do with them being our closest cousins and incredibly intelligent…or maybe it’s just that they fling their poo and grab each others testicles, who knows?
Bonobo’s are one of the coolest ape species. I’ve seen a lot of good stuff on them over the years. This is a relatively short video and just gives a brief look at their culture and the games they play. Perhaps there’s something our culture could learn from theirs, in particular how casual they are about sex?
