Favorite thing: Chimpanzees are found in savannah woodlands, grassland-forest mosaic and tropical moist forests, from sea level to about 3,000 m elevation.
Chimpanzees are highly social animals. Their communities consist of loose and flexible groups of males and females (fusion-fission societies) within a fixed home range, led by a dominant male. Members join and leave these communities freely, depending among other on their reproductive status and the availability of resources. Apart from the dominant leader, there are also groups of individuals with some level of authority. Communities of about 50 individuals each have been reported in forest, woodland and savannah habitat, but overall size range is around 15-80.
Diet:Food items include fruits, leaves and other plant parts, honey, insects (especially termites), and occasionally eggs and meat. Chimpanzees sometimes stalk, kill and eat other primates or young antelopes, and may hunt co-operatively.
