Bonobo

Fun fact: We were the first zoo in the United States to welcome a baby bonobo.

Bonobo: "The bonobo was the last of the great apes to be discovered and, together with the chimpanzee, it is our closest living relative. They are found only in the Democratic Republic of the Congo in central Africa, inhabiting a low-lying basin enclosed between the River Zaire, the River Sankuru-Kasai and the River Lualaba." 100 Animals To See Before They Die www.bradtguides.com
