Wild Chimpanzee Facts



 Chimpanzees are the closest living cousins of humans. These primates' natural home is Africa, with the majority of species inhabiting the rainforests, grasslands, and woodlands of West and Central Africa. Long black hair covers their whole bodies. They don't have a tail like other monkeys. They live in big villages that may include up to 150 people. Chimpanzees are a critically endangered species. The number of chimps has decreased from 2 million to 300,000 due to habitat loss and increasing commercial hunting.


Chimpanzee Facts to Consider:


Chimpanzees are omnivorous, meaning they consume both plants and animals. Fruit, insects, eggs, and meat are among their favorite foods.


Chimpanzees' thumbs are in opposition to their other fingers, meaning that their thumbs are not aligned with the other four fingers (just like in human hands). The form of their hands enables them to create and utilize tools, as well as groom each other....


Chimpanzees use sticks to remove ants from trees and holes, and stones to crack the nut's shell.


Chimpanzees may get the same illnesses as people, such as measles, ringworm, hepatitis B, influenza, and so on.


They communicate in their society by exchanging kisses, embraces, and touches, as well as a complex system of noises.


Grooming is an essential practice that helps community members form strong connections. It may also help agitated animals relax.


Chimpanzees have a strength of 6-7 times that of humans.


When chimps get bored, they arrange a variety of activities to keep themselves occupied.


In captivity, chimps may learn human sign language.


They sleep in tree nests during night. Leaves and branches are used to construct nests. Every night, the chimp moves his nest to a new place.


Chimpanzees can walk on two legs even though they need all four limbs to walk.


Every 3-4 years, a female will give birth to a child. The bond between a mother and her young animal is very deep and may endure up to seven years.


The white tail tuft on a baby chimp's tail fades with time.


Chimpanzees consume medicinal herbs to cure themselves when they are sick.


Chimpanzees live for 40-50 years in the wild and 50-60 years in captivity.
