    Wait, so chimpanzees are 'assholes' because they like porn? [From your link: They Get Addicted To Porn]. What does that make the good citizens of Utah, who watch more Internet porn than the citizens of any other state? Are they 'assholes', too? Given all the chimpanzees we humans keep in captivity, we should probably make some specialized chimpanzee porno for their enjoyment. It's kind of weird that the chimpanzees watch human porno. How many humans would watch chimpanzee porno? If you enjoyed watching chimpanzee porno, I'd call you a sicko. Point is, chimpanzees liking porn does not differ them from humans in any way, nor does their liking alchohol.

    And here's a fun fact for you: humans have killed and eaten chimpanzees far, FAR more frequently than the reverse. We're the chimpanzee's greatest natural enemy. We're the ones who are threatening it's very survival. Maybe we're the assholes. In fact, there's a general consensus that the way the primary AIDS virus was first transmitted into the human race was from someone butchering chimpanzees and eating raw chimpanzee brains.

    He's not a full grown chimp btw.

    Can't we just have some feel good stories here something without people crapping all over them?
    You must not have read my words.

    I said it was a "Wonderful, heartwarming story."

    That's as good as it gets...

    Rather touching. Chimpanzee also bonded with family dog.
    The first face transplant in the U.S. was successfully performed here in Cleveland, and the patient required it following an attack by her longtime pet chimpanzee.

    I am not a huge fan of attempts at domesticating dangerous wild animals.

    They do grow up, and turn nasty.
    Ethically, a domesticated chimp is not likely to ever succeed at a return to natural behavior and thus, cannot join a troop. (Flock? Gang? Horde?)

    I just don't like humans doing this, and would like it outlawed unless there is a scientific research project, etc.

    Agree, but there will always be people who will try.

    Some will be successful, others...not so much.

Whenever I hear someone see a chimpanzee and call it a 'big monkey', I get my dander up. It's as, well, uneducated, as looking at a bear and calling it a dog. Just sayin'.
    Color me *stupid*. I also thought chimps were monkeys.

    I sit corrected!

    We do! But I live close to the worst exotic animal disaster in the U.S., and these stories just piss me off.

    "Zanesville Exotic Animal Disaster".

    Mentally ill humans who develop obsessions with lethal wild animals should never, ever get positive reinforcement for their crazy behavior.

    The group of animals known as the 'great apes' consist of chimpanzees and their very close relatives the bonobos, plus gorillas and orangutans, plus the extinct genus Gigantopithecus, which includes the largest apes that ever existed----roughly twice the size of adult male gorillas!. The 'lesser apes' are gibbons, which are often confused for monkeys. No apes have tails. But there are SOME monkeys without tails, such as the ground-living baboons and macaques.
    Thanks from Madeline

    It is called a troop of chimpanzees, which does seem appropriate, as they will indeed sometimes wage war on a neighboring troop of chimpanzees, in very organized fashion.

    Did you know that all dogs are descended from wolves, and did you know that wolves are considered by many people to be dangerous animals, and did you know that dogs are nowadays often called 'man's best friend'?
