Bonobos Make Sounds Like Human Infants

Though many species of apes only vocalize to express their emotional state, researchers have found that the bonobo species native to Congo made “peep” sounds unrelated to specific objectives or emotions, much like human infants engage in babbling. What do you think?

“But can they prolong marriages like human infants?”

“Anyone who’s ever had to endure a long flight with a baby on one side and a bonobo on the other could’ve told you that.”

“Humanity is too fragile for this research to go any further.”
