Bonobos are our closest relatives in evolution (along with chimpanzees). One of the most promiscuous animals on the planet, bonobos use sexual activity for every purpose- from greeting friends to resolving conflicts with rivals. Bonobo sexual interactions are rarely discriminative of age or gender. No wonder they're the among the most peaceful creatures on the planet!
Bonobos are endangered because of habitat loss and hunting for bushmeat. The comic appears in my column with Mid-Day today.
