Intelligent Bonobo Cooks Marshmallows

One of the world's smartest creatures is a bonobo named Kanzi, who has been studying at the Great Ape Trust in Des Moines, Iowa. In addition to having intelligent conversations with humans by means of a complex vocabulary of symbols, Kanzi is able to make a campfire and cook his own food. This video depicts Kanzi building a fire and roasting marshmallows. Afterward, he puts the fire out with a bottle of water--but not before taking a tasty swig. (Video by Barcroft Media.)
