Chimpanzees are Special
When you read the article below you realise that the Monkey world is catching up with the human world. We can use tools and we can also walk on two legs, and there is no doubt that Monkeys are beginning to get more intelligent too. OK, it will be in many, many genrerations before anything really changes. In the meantime, we share that 98% of human genes. We monkeys are that close!!!
Us chimps are highly social animals, care for their offspring for years and can live to be over 50. In fact, chimpanzees are our closest cousins; we share about 98 percent of our genes.In their habitat in the forests of central Africa, chimpanzees spend most of their days in the tree tops. When they do come down to earth, chimps usually travel on all fours, though they can walk on their legs like humans for as far as a mile. They use sticks to fish termites out of mounds and bunches of leaves to sop up drinking water.
