Can young bonobos help a brother out?

The following is an awesome video showing a young bonobo helping another bonobo escape from his cage. This may prove bonobos are smarter than most creationists.

As blogger Eric Michael Johnson explains:

Bonobos have long intrigued researchers for their unusual (except for us) propensity to cooperate and share with others, a trait not found to the same degree in our close cousin the chimpanzee.

My alternative theory is that maybe chimpanzees are just jerks.

Vodpod videos no longer available.
