Chimpanzees are our closest living relatives, sharing more than 98 percent of
our genetic blueprint. Humans and chimps are also thought to share a
common ancestor who lived some four to eight million years ago.
Chimpanzees live in social communities of several dozen animsls, and can
habituate themselves to African rain forests, woodlands, and grasslands.
Although they normally walk on all fours (knuckle walking), chimpanzees can
stand and walk upright. By swinging from branch to branch they can also
move quite efficiently in the trees, where the do most of thier eating.
Chimpanzees usualy sleep in trees as well , employing nests of leaves
Chimps are generally fruit and plant eaters, but they also consume insects,
eggs, and meat, including carrion. They have a tremendously varied diet
that includes hundreds of known foods.
Chimpanzees are one of the few animal species that employ tools. They shape
and use sticks to retrieve insects from their nests or dig grubs out of logs.
They also use stones to smash open tasty nuts and employ leaves as
sponges to soak up drinking water. Chimpanzees can even be
taught to use some basic human sign language.
Females can give birth at any time of year, typically to a single infant that
clings to its mother's fur and later rides on her back until the age of two.
Females reach reproductive age at 13, while males are not considered
adults until they are 16 years old.
Although chimps and humans are closely related, the apes have suffered
much at human hands. These great apes are endangered and still
threatened by bushmeat hunters and habitat destruction. - National Geographic
