3. Although female bonobos are about 20% smaller than males, they dominate males by sticking together. If a male gets out of line and harasses a female, all the other females react in sisterly solidarity.

5. They are often bisexual, having frequent, casual sex with both sexes. Bonobos utilize sex like humans utilize handshakes or hugs, like a greeting among friends.
