(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Stunning new video from the BBC show "Monkey Planet" is showing us just how closely related we are.

The video shows Kanzi, a 33-year-old male ape, collecting twigs, lighting a match, and roasting marshmallows over a fire.

BBC says Kanzi is world-renowned for his proficiency in communication.

Raised at a research center at Georgia's Emory University, Kanzi is believed to be the first ape to have taught himself a form of human communication without any instruction to do so.
