Lineage: Eukaryota[10856]; Metazoa[5115]; Chordata[2487]; Craniata[2464]; Vertebrata[2464]; Euteleostomi[2443]; Mammalia[687]; Eutheria[513]; Euarchontoglires[207]; Primates[82]; Haplorrhini[60]; Catarrhini[46]; Hominidae[6]; Pan[2]; Pan paniscus[1]
Although the bonobo, or pygmy chimpanzee, Pan paniscus and common chimpanzee Pan troglodytes are morphologically similar they are known to have many behavioral differences. Bonobos are endangered in their wild habitat in west-central Africa.
