You may already know that chimpanzees are mammals, but they are very similar to us in many ways, for example, some chimps play with rocks, like us, we like to play with lots of things.  Sometimes they play with other chimps, like we play with our friends.  Chimpanzees are very intelligent animals.

The arms of a chimpanzee are longer than their legs.  A chimp’s diet is plants and insects, sometimes they even eat meat! That is crazy! I think it is crazy because I always thought they just ate plants.  Chimps have opposable toes to allow it to grip and hang on branches with its feet.  Male chimps can grow up to 3-4 ft tall, females can grow up to 2-3 ft tall and can both weigh between 123-176 pounds.  They can live in tropical rainforests in Africa.
