Chimpanzees are members of the Hominidae family, along with gorillas, humans, and orangutans. The chimpanzee is the animal that is closest to people genetically Chimpanzees are great apes that are closely related to humans. Recent studies have shown that chimpanzees engage in evidently unselfish behaviour within groups like -adopting an orphan chimpanzee -chimpanzee spirituality -incipient romantic love -rain dance -empathy toward other species .Chimpanzees, gorillas, and orangutans show laughter-like vocalizations in response to physical contact, such as wrestling, play chasing, or tickling. The average sleep time of a chimpanzee in captivity is said to be 9.7 hours per day. Chimpanzees use large sticks and branches as clubs or throw them at enemies like leopards and humans. Chimps supplement their diets with meat, such as young antelopes or goats. Their most frequent victims, however, are other primates such as young baboons, colobus monkeys and blue monkeys. These clever primates live in a variety of environments in western & central Africa. Because of the fast deforestation of their habitats, chimpanzees are an endangered species.
