Bonobo and Chimpanzee (IMAGE) Springer Caption Those who are not familiar with bonobos and chimpanzees may have trouble telling the two species apart: they look alike and they live in similar habitats. In fact, it wasn't until 90 years ago that experts realised that bonobos and chimpanzees were different species. In his book, Bonobo and Chimpanzee, Takeshi Furuichi describes his observations of both species' behaviour while drawing parallels between humans, bonobos and chimpanzees.
