Bonobos (Pan paniscus) live only in the Democratic Republic of Congo south of the Congo River. They live in a matriarchial society where the females are dominant. They can live in groups of up to 100 bonobos but these groups usually break up and come back together, typical of a fission-fusion society. Unlike chimpanzees, bonobo communities are not aggressive between themselves. Bonobos are famous for their peaceful societies.
