Comparisons Between Chimps and Humans
We have always been told that many Monkeys are very close to humans in many ways. Here we have an article that talks about that in more detail. Remember that we have feelings too!!
Chimpanzees are often incorrectly called monkeys. they’re actually in the great ape family just like us. The other great apes are orangutans and gorillas. There is only one species of human alive at present: homo sapiens. In the past, many scientists tried to argue that there were several species of human. Would often hasten to add that they themselves belonged to the ‘superior&rsquo. Species.
However, all humans can produce fertile children and so we’re all the same species. Chimpanzees, on the other hand, are actually two species: pan troglodytes, the common chimpanzee. Pan paniscus, the gracile chimpanzee or bonobo. These two types of chimpanzee are completely separate species. Humans and both chimpanzee species evolved from a common ancestor, possibly sahelanthropus tchadensis, between five and seven million years ago. Only fossils of this ancestor remain.
