Chimpanzees rarely live past the age of 40 in the wild, but have been known to reach the age of more than 60 in captivity.

Cheeta, star of Tarzan is still alive as of 2008 at the age of 76, making him the oldest known chimpanzee in the world.

Chimpanzees make tools and use them to acquire foods and for social displays; they have sophisticated hunting strategies requiring cooperation, influence and rank; they are status conscious, manipulative and capable of deception; they can learn to use symbols and understand aspects of human language including some relational syntax, concepts of number and numerical sequence.

Young chimpanzees have outperformed human college students in tasks requiring remembering numbers.

    Adorable shot, they always look so sad…

  • I know that’s what captivity can do I guess but on the bright side they are safe and in breeding programs to help the species along thank so much for the lovely comments ! ……
