Chimpanzee is the closest relative to us, human beings.
Even though we share over many of the same chromasones
humans evolved as the dominent species and not chimps.
Of all the great apes, the chimpanzee is probably the
most familiar to most people. They are the most social
of the apes, living in groups of at least a dozen individuals.
Unlike most other primates, a chimpanzee's arms and legs
are equal in length, more like a human being's. They walk
upright, but cannot straighten their knees, which causes
them to tilt forward. Chimpanzee's typically weigh about
65 lbs. for females, and 90 lbs. For males. The live for
about 40 or 50 years. Much like us chimpanzees are omnivores;
they eat fruit, nuts, leaves, honey, eggs, bark, insects,
birds, and small mammals. Occasionally, they kill and
eat monkeys, young antelope, and other small animals.
