Chimpanzee class: Mammal

Chimpanzee (often shortened to chimp) is the common name for the two extant species of ape in the genus Pan. The better known chimpanzee is Pan troglodytes, the Common Chimpanzee, living primarily in West, and Central Africa. Its cousin, the Bonobo or Pygmy Chimpanzee as it is known archaically, Pan paniscus, is found in the forests of the Democratic Republic of the Congo. The Congo River forms the boundary between the two species.

Chimpanzees are members of the Hominidae family, along with gorillas, humans, and orangutans. The two chimpanzee species are the closest living relatives to humans; all being members of the Hominini tribe (along with extinct species of Hominina subtribe). Chimpanzees are the only known members of the Panina subtribe.

The genus Pan is now considered to be part of the subfamily Homininae to which humans also belong. These two species are the closest living evolutionary relatives to humans. Humans shared a common ancestor with chimpanzees five to eight million years ago. Groundbreaking research by Mary-Claire King in 1973 found 99% identical DNA between human beings and chimpanzees, although research since has modified that finding to about 94% commonality, with at least some of the difference occurring in 'junk' DNA. It has even been proposed that troglodytes and paniscus belong with sapiens in the genus Homo, rather than in Pan. One argument for this is that other species have been reclassified to belong to the same genus on the basis of less genetic similarity than that between humans and chimpanzees.

The Common Chimpanzee and the Bonobo do not swim. It has been suggested that the formation of the Congo River 1.52 million years ago separated the ancestors of the Bonobo south of the river, from the ancestors of the Common Chimpanzee to the north of the river. This event is thought to have triggered the speciation of the two chimpanzee species.

Many human fossils have been found, but chimpanzee fossils were not described until 2005. Existing chimpanzee populations in West and Central Africa do not overlap with the major human fossil sites in East Africa. However, chimpanzee fossils have now been reported from Kenya. This would indicate that both humans and members of the Pan clade were present in the East African Rift Valley during the Middle Pleistocene.

A fully grown adult male chimpanzee can weigh from 3570 kilograms (75155 lb) and stand 0.91.2 metres (34 ft) tall, while females usually weigh 2650 kg (57110 lb) and stand 0.661 m (23 ft) tall.
