According to recent studies, definitely both Bonobos are common Chimps are equal to us, but different among them by 0.4% (1 million years different evolution) Bonobos Join Chimps as Closest Human Relatives - ScienceNOW

On Orangutan unique sharing Genetic archaeology finds parts of human genome more closely related to orangutans than chimps Orangutan is far more diverse genetically than humans, in spite of being nearly the same genetics that 15 million years ago Orangutan DNA more diverse than human



With that much similarity it does make you wonder whether in the distant past some desperate pervo had a go with a twenty stone gorilla.

Perhaps more curious would be to speculate how one goes about seducing a 20 stone gorilla?

More cognac my dear?

The axolotl is basically an immature form of a salamander. Although axolotls don't normally develop any further, they can be induced to transform into a salamander by an injection of iodine.

Humans for some reason, don't have one and Richard Dawkins puts it down to sexual selection.
Maybe that's the origin of the phrase "to have a boner"...

a incridible animal but not good vision when you are riding alone.
Of the Panthera family, only the Jaguar and the Tiger are strong swimmers of the big cats.

In recent years, China has seen a social change, whereby men leave their families in the country to go off to work in the cities. The men only get to visit home once or twice a year, which makes their wives very lonely. Some women have turned to the family dog in desperation.
