Kanzi the bonobo lives in America and has learned how to build a fire, light it using matches and toast marshmallows on it. The behavior shows how similar we are to our primate family and is another great example of animal intelligence.

In another clip from BBC’s Monkey Planetwe get a glimpse of what monkeys do for fun:

Dive Bombing Macaques

Rhesus macaques in Jaipur, India, dive bomb off a lamp post into a foot of water to have fun, implying that monkeys can be capable of feelings.
