The pan-hoot is a complex long-distance vocalisation for chimps. It can be separated into four distinct groups: introduction, build-up, climax and let-down. They start soft and low, getting faster in the build-up, becomes very loud and high, like a scream, then back down to a similar rate of the build-up to finally finish.
The pan-hoot is done by both male and females with the most frequent hooters being high-ranking males. It is commonly joined by other males to produce a chorus of call, but it can be an individual hoot too.
Hooting is done for many reasons. Chorusing is used to form cohesive groups of males and show dominance and strength. But chimps also hoot hen they see a fruit tree laden with delicious snacks, calling the others to come and join them. It is also a good way to communicate who you are, where you are, and to help distinguish who is in the group.
