Caption: Chimpanzee (Pan troglodytes) in grass. The chimpanzee inhabits forests and forest edges of central and western Africa. It is social, living in large communities that may contain dozens of individuals, arranged in loose family groups. The groups show high levels of social interaction, with individuals forming alliances and jostling for a higher position in the hierarchy. The chimp is highly communicative, using a wide range of facial expressions, vocalisations and gestures. It is one of the few animals to use tools, utilising rocks and sticks to help it catch and prepare foods. It is the closest living relative of humans. Photographed in Uganda.
