The Real Apes of the Planet (2014)
It would seem unlikely that there could be many surprises left in the category of wonders involving the abilities of primates. Still Animal Planet delivers enough to make a viewer gape. It's one thing to see the sacred macaques of Thailand using stolen human hair for tooth flossing. But nothing is equal to the party thrown by the 33-year-old bonobo male Kanzi, a resident of Iowa, shown selecting his picnic food, building a fire, toasting marshmallows (while looking remarkably self-satisfied), and carefully putting the fire out with bottled water. Who is going to top him?
