Smart ape lights a fire

Latest comment: Bonobos are quite amazing and the most peace loving of the ape species (completely different to chimpanzees BTW). As with all animals, their attention span is not very long, simply because it does not need to be. Question: Is she conducting some scientific research and what organisation is she from?

Most humans I know couldn't light a fire, it takes some skill and knowledge. By the way, do you turn everything into a religious context? PS, no need to SHOUT!

Actually, the similarity to mans behavior is astonishing. Like the way they left all their shit laying in the countryside.
