Many of the known primates are so close in similarity and how they live and how they behave – they are more peaceful than a gorilla but lets look at how they compare to what we should be thinking in the line of Bigfoot :

Chimpanzees are great apes that are closely related to humans. These intelligent primates live in a variety of environments in western and central Africa. Because of the rapid deforestation of their habitats, chimpanzees are an endangered species.

ANATOMY Chimpanzees have very long arms (the arms are longer than the legs), and a short body.

Hair and Skin: Chimpanzees are covered with black hair on most of their armpits, and bottoms of their feet). Baby chimpanzees hav have no hair and a white tuft of hair on the rump.

Senses: Chimpanzees have senses very similar to ours, including smell , taste, great hearing & have sensitivities in there hair .

Face: Chimpanzees have a slight brow ridge, large ears, small no are capable of many expressions. Chimpanzees have a hair beard in both male and female adults.

Hands and Feet: Chimpanzees’ hands are very much like ours; they have a thumb (the thumb is shorter than the other fingers). Their opposable big toe. Chimpanzees can grasp things with both hands & feet.

SIZE Male chimpanzees are larger than the females.

Chimpanzees Height Female 2-3.5 ft (0.66 -1 m) 57 -110 Male 3-4 ft (0.9-1.2 m) 90 – 115

DIET Chimpanzees are omnivores (eating plants and meat). The during the day, eating leaves, fruit, seeds, tree bark, plant flowers. They also eat termites, ants, and small animals (even other young monkeys).

Chimpanzees drink water, often by using a chewed leaf as a moist spounge.

INTELLIGENCE AND TOOLS Chimpanzees are very intelligent and can learn extremely quick and can pick up suggested movement as gestures.

Tools: Chimpanzees often use tools in the wild. They use sticks to find termites to eat and to scare away intruders. They also use them sop up water to drink.

BEHAVIOR AND SOCIAL HABITS Groups of Chimpanzees: Chimpanzees are social animals that are active during the small, stable groups (called communities or unit groups) of subgroups of 6-7 chimps stay together for a while, with the group . CHIMPS ARE CURIOUS BUT YET SHY AS WELL.

Various types of structure are made for various reasons . – Nests for sleeping , shelters from the elements , And also upon intruders chimps like other primates will show signs to scare off predators they will break trees , limbs and slap them and tree & limb breaking also indicates the sign of Dominance either from a male or female in the group .

Grooming: Grooming one another (cleaning the hair of another chimp .

Sleeping Nests: Each evening, chimpanzees construct a fresh “sleeping nest and sleep. These bowl-shaped nests are made out of leaves and only shared by a mother and her nursing offspring. Nests are common in trees however are becoming more common on the ground , do to adaptations .

Play: Young chimpanzees play a lot, learning skills they will use tools, making sleeping nests, climbing, wrestling, etc.

COMMUNICATION AND VOCALIZATION Communication is used to teach the young to survive, and to convey information to other chimps relationships, distress, mating, contacting others etc.

Sounds: Chimpanzees have a complex system of communication. Such as of danger in the area; their danger call can be heard for miles (3 km). When there is an abundance of food, chimps contact & call their group to a feast.

Gestures: Chimpanzees also use many gestures to indicate needs an chimps for food by approaching them with open hands. A worried chimp makes a lip-puckering face.

LOCOMOTION Chimpanzees usually walk using all fours (on the soles of their feet ,They can walk upright (when they need to use their arms to reach or defend.. Chimps are also very acrobatic & good at climbing trees, They can swing from branch to branch.

LIFE SPAN Chimpanzees live about 60 years in captivity; (like most animals, they live much longer in captivity)

HABITAT Chimpanzees live in a wide variety of habitats, including rock ledges and clearings), woodlands, swamp forests, and grass lands.

DISTRIBUTION The different subspecies of chimpanzees live in different parts of western and central Africa in 21 different countries, from the Atlantic coast to well inland.

Chimpanzee populations are becoming increasingly fragmented as parts of their habitat are used by people.

REPRODUCTION AND BABY CHIMPANZEES Chimpanzees are fully grown and able to reproduce at 12-1 are pregnant for about 8.5-9 months.

Female chimpanzees carefully nurture their young. Babies stay on the mother’s back at about 6 months. After that they remain with their mother for about 7 years.

POPULATION COUNTS Chimpanzee populations are decreasing; they are threaten numbers are disputed. Estimates range from 100,000 to 20

JANE GOODALL Jane Goodall is a scientist who spent most of her adult life in Gombe National Park, Tanzania ( it was then the Gombe Tanganyika), Africa. Her field-work, which lasted for almost given us a tremendous amount of information about these very similar to that of humans.

THE EVOLUTION OF CHIMPANZEES The earliest-known primates date from about 70 million & greater apes (family Pongidae, gorillas, chimpanzees, bono the lesser apes (family Hylobatidae, gibbons and siamangs)

And According to scientists they believe in theory how they are part of us although I stand apart from the Evolutionary theory when it comes to man & ape.

The chimpanzee is the animal that is closest to people gene & very similar DNA (about 98% of human and chimpanzee  share a common ancestor.


With having. the basic understanding of chimps ; Have you.properly observed & done the right research to see these similarities in our own back yard?
Have you seen all the signs that indicate and point at Bigfoot being a primate ?
( IF NOT )
