Meet the Chimpanzee!

The Chimpanzee, of the existing great apes, is the one that most closely resembles humans: its facial expressiveness is unparalleled in the animal world. With an almost human face, it communicates very easily with other chimpanzees.

It is a slender animal, whose arms are longer than its legs. Its body is covered in black fur, except for the face, top of the head and ears.

It is in danger of extinction, and is currently only found in the jungles of West Africa.

What are its habits?

It is a gregarious animal,  organized in free groups that are integrated into a community. The age and sex- composition of these groups is very variable.

 Delousing is a social ritual that encourages friendship between individuals whose intelligence is almost human.

They are able to learn behaviors from their peers.

Infants are born at an early stage of development and need their mother to survive. They drink their mother’s milk and ride on her back. Infants learn from their mother through play.

It communicates by screaming, which is why it is one of the noisiest animals that exist. It also stands out for its ability to feed and defend itself, since it is capable of making and even using tools.
