Bonobo Social Groups

  • Bonobos live in groups of up to 100 individuals. Most groups have between 25-75 bonobos.

  • They form smaller groups during the day to forage.

  • What is foraging?

57% of their diet is fruit

  • They also eat insect larvae, earthworms, honey, eggs, and soil. Only sometimes do they eat small mammals and they very rarely hunt.

  • You could say they are primarily vegetarians or herbivores.

  • At night, bonobos re-group and build night nests in the trees

  • These are made of branches, leaves, and other vegetation.

  • As they prepare to sleep, bonobos fill the twilight with a symphony of soprano squeals. Their high-pitched vocalizations sound like a flock of exotic birds.
