Chimpanzees (Pan troglodytes). Chimpanzee siblings hugging each other. The chimpanzee's natural habitat is the forest 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 chimp is highly communicative, using a wide range of facial expressions, vocalisations and gestures. It feeds on a variety of foods including both plants and animals. It is thought that humans and chimps had a common ancestor as little as 5 million years ago.

Caricature of P T Barnum and Jumbo the elephant
Caricature of Phineas Taylor (PT) Barnum (1810-1891), American showman and businessman, and Jumbo the African elephant which he bought for his circus from London Zoo in 1882. The sale caused public outrage in Britain. "If you take Jumbo, Mr Barnum, and he should revenge himself, don't expect any sympathy from the English people."
