Tool use

October 15, 2015

Wild bonobos have not yet been observed using tools, however, captive bonobos, including those at Lola are just great tool users! At Lola, the bonobos are specialist in cracking nuts! Stones, sticks, teeth, anything is worth trying to get to the rich center of the palm nut. Bombo certainly seems to have mastered the technique despite his young age!
