Zoologists have, over the years, invested substantial amounts of their time and resources in studying what different animals eat, how they live, and how they interact with their habitats. One of the by-products of these investigative ventures was the determination that primates are related (Koufos, 2016). Due to this, zoologists have established that primates evolved from a common ancestor and, thus, are genetically similar (Koufos, 2016). Human DNA is, on average, 96% identical to the DNA of humans’ distant primate relatives and 99% identical to human’s closest relative, the chimpanzee (Koufos, 2016). Generally, ” primate ” refers to any mammal, including monkeys, humans, lemurs, and tarsiers. The order Primates, with its over 300 species, is the 3rd most diverse mammalian order, after bats and rodents (Koufos, 2016). This paper will provide an in-depth analysis of chimpanzees, specifically focusing on their description, habitat, behaviors, and threats.
