It wouldn't let me comment so i'm just gonna put it here i believe they are more moral because bonobos are more peaceful

Morality is survival above an individual level. Whichever species is more successful can claim moral superiority.

@Forthelulz, That doesn't make any sense, at least not by human standards. There are more Christians than any other religion: does that mean Christians are morally superior to all others? There are more Asians than any other race: does that mean Asians are morally superior to all others?

They think they're monkeys on a spinning ball!

@Edlvsjd, who? The chimps and the bonobos? I don't think they ponder the shape of the Earth. If they did, they'd probably think the Earth is flat.

@Edlvsjd FYI, They are apes, like us.

Neither. They're animals, we're not. Animals don't have morals only natural instinct.

@Rjupudi18 By definition animals are living organisms which feed off of organic matter, typically having specialized sense organs and nervous systems which are able to respond rapidly to stimuli.

The more intelligent an animal is, the more hard it is to differentiate between morals and instincts. It becomes apparent if you know how the brain has evolved.
