Bonobo monkeys

Do bonobo monkeys have any predators?

The main predators of the bonobo are humans who hunt the bonobo for its meat and the odd crocodile when the bonobo gets close to the water. It is thought that other large primates may prey on the bonobo in the wild but that will often be down to disagreements over territory that turn nasty.

Is the bonobo a chimp or an ape?

The bonobo (/ b n o b o, b n b o /; Pan paniscus), also historically called the pygmy chimpanzee and less often, the dwarf or gracile chimpanzee, is an endangered great ape and one of the two species making up the genus Pan; the other being the common chimpanzee (Pan troglodytes).

What is the lifecycle of a bonobo?

The average lifespan of bonobos is 40 years (Rowe 1996).

Is the bonobo a keystone species?

Bonobos are known as a keystone species, vital to the diversification and existence of their forests. Bonobos, which are close relatives of the chimpanzee, service the forest by dispersing a multitude of seeds, thus maintaining rich, diverse forests.
