Common chimpanzee (Pan troglodytes)

Chimpanzees are the closest living evolutionary relatives to humans, sharing a common ancestor with humans about four to six million years ago. They share 99% DNA with human beings.

Male grow up to 1.7 m high when standing, and weigh as much as 70 kg; the female is somewhat smaller.

Chimpanzees live in a leaner hierarchy in which more than one individual may be dominant enough to dominate other members of lower rank. Typically, a dominant male is referred to as the alpha male.

They make tools and use them to acquire foods and for social displays; they have sophisticated hunting strategies requiring cooperation, influence and rank; they are status conscious, manipulative and capable of deception; they can learn to use symbols and understand aspects of human language including some relational syntax, concepts of number and numerical sequence; and they are capable of spontaneous planning for a future state or event.

Chimps communicate in a manner similar to human nonverbal communication, using vocalizations, hand gestures, and facial expressions.
