Unlike chimpanzees, bonobos are slimmer with longer limbs and already have a black face colouring as juveniles. Their behaviour is also slightly different from their chimpanzee relatives. Bonobos prefer the trees to the ground and their groups are matriarchal. Sexual contact (also between animals of the same sex) is often used to reduce tension.
