This Ape Was Gathering Dried Sticks. What He Did After Totally Blew My Mind Away. Unbelievable!

Kanzi is an amazing ape renowned for his intelligence. The Bonobo demonstrated his fire-building and marshmallow-toasting skills on camera for the BBC show, “Monkey Planet.”

The video (a clip from the final episode of the BBC documentary on primates) shows Kanzi collecting a pile of dry bush.

Kanzi’s performance gained praises on social media. “Every good psychology student knows who Kanzi is, but I didn’t know he could toast marshmallows!” one viewer tweeted after seeing the show. But there were also some who were not convinced saying it’s fake, that it was a human clothed in a bonobo suit.

It’s not the first time Kanzi exhibited such amazing act. This famously intelligent ape is expert in sign language, knowledgeable in using a smartphone to order his own meals, and shows remarkable empathy for his human handlers.
