Bonobos and people share 98.4% of the same genetic make-up (DNA).
The Bonobo has highly individuated facial features, as humans do, so that one individual can look significantly different from another.
Bonobos live only in one country: the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).
In contrast to the competitive, male-dominated culture of their close relative the chimpanzee, bonobo society is peaceful and matriarchal.
Bonobos have a very distinctive coiffure with long black hair parted neatly in the middle and side whiskers.
Young bonobos have black faces while young chimps have white faces.
The liquid capacity of one elephant bird egg was about two gallons (7.5 liters), 180 times that of a chicken egg, possibly making it the largest single cell ever. An adult bird probably weighed about one thousand pounds (450 kilograms).
