Chimpanzees are so like humans.
They play like humans do and are considered the closest link to humans there is from the animal world. It is possible that we could have had a common ancestor from long ago times. Chimpanzees live together as humans do. They have groups of a few dozen that all live together. They live in the rain forest, in wooded areas and also in grasslands. A chimpanzee typically uses it’s arms when it is walking around but can also stand upright like a human if it wants to. Chimpanzees are also known for being able to use tools. They have been seen using a stick to pry out insects from trees or logs.
Video of Chimpanzees at Play.
In the video, the young chimpanzees are practicing their skills they will need as they get older. While they are playing, an adult chimpanzee is watching over them. The youngsters are swinging from the branches a skill needed when they are older when they need to quickly move through the trees. They also eat most of the time in the trees and sleep there as well. They gather up areas of leaves in the trees to form a bed.The adult chimpanzee pulls off a branch and strips it to chew on as it watches over the youngsters. Seeing this, one of the young ones finds it’s own branch, pulls off the leaves and sits down to chew on it copying the adult. It appears young chimpanzess’s just like human children learn from their elders by copying what they see.
The Chimpanzees Diet
When it’s time to eat or move to another place, the babies gather on the back of the adult for a ride. If going to eat, the chimpanzee’s diet usually consist of plants. They are also known to eat insects, eggs and meat. What they like to eat in their daily diet is really not very well known.
