Chimpanzees are our closest relatives,   with whom we share 99 percent of our DNA. We are more closely related to chimps   than chimps are to gorillas. Humans didn't evolve "from" chimps. Rather both   species evolved from separate ape like species. Those who coined the term   "evolved from" chimps or monkeys, or those who still don't differenciate between   apes and monkeys are highly misinformed.

"Cute baby monkey" is a previous comment. This cutie is actually an ape, chimpanzee maybe.

Great ape trafficking itself is not new, conservationists have known about the trade for decades.  However, in recent years technology and demand for live chimpanzees in zoos has increased the number of chimpanzees exported overseas.  To make matters worse many countries in West and Central Africa do not have effective policies for preventing wildlife trafficking.  This has resulted in chimpanzees, bonobos, and gorillas becoming the target of animal traffickers in countries like Democratic…

Orangutan mom Indah and her little girl Aisha enjoy the morning sun. Orangutans, whose name means “people of the forest,” live in tropical and swamp forests on the Southeast Asian islands of Borneo and Sumatra. These shaggy red apes are the largest arboreal mammal and the only great ape found in Asia. The other great apes—gorillas, chimpanzees, and bonobos—are all native to Africa.

Bonobos are not ordinary animals, mammals, primates, or monkeys! Bonobo is our closest cousin.DNA similarities between man and the Bonobo primates is an incredible 99.5%.Yes, just so, almost the same. Bonobo is more like a man and closer to a gorilla. And just one more thing, do not mix Bonobos and Chimpanzees, as many people do in the dark.Bonobos need only hair, to be homonides.
