Can these animals actually understand English?

I watched this video with complete FASCINATION. Actually it was the first time I had ever heard of the name of these BONOBOS & their intelligence is OVERWHELMING.

> " Bonobos Are Smarter Than You Think "
seems a stupid way to put it, as that depends on assumption of what "I/You" think

assumption is the mother of most fuckups.

I think and therefore I do think they are amazing in their 'smarts' ... :-). I'd not heard the name before that I recalled until after seeing the video... then I did...Mac R has mentioned them to me before. Now I know what all the 'aw' is about. I couldn't stop with watching just the one clip as there were others on the site to view ...and so I did.

Amazing primates that are very intelligent, let's hope they don't understand to much.
that their cousins are being tortured in labs elsewhere for example.
