Chimpanzees are very intelligent great apes that are closely related to humans. They live in a variety of environments in western and central Africa. Chimps live in small, stable groups (called communities or unit groups) of about 40-60 chimps. They are an endangered species, since the forests they live in are cut down and used for farm land.

Chimpanzees often use tools in the wild. They use sticks to get ants and termites to eat and to scare away intruders. They also use chewed-up leaves like a sponge to sop up water to drink.

Anatomy: Chimpanzees have very long arms (longer than the legs), and a short body covered with black hair (except on the face, fingers, palms, armpits, and bottoms of their feet). Adults have a short, white beard. Chimps range from 2 - 4 ft (0.7 - 1.2 m) tall.

Diet: Chimpanzees are omnivores (they eat both plants and meat). They forage for food in the forests during the day, eating leaves, fruit, seeds, and other plant material. They also eat termites, ants, and small animals (they have even been known to eat young monkeys).
