Description

Chimpanzees are very adept at being in trees. It is a very important skill for them to have as they spend a good amount of time up there, sleeping, eating, and being a lookout. It is a skill they must perfect from a young age which is often encouraged in play, for example being chased up a tree by an older chimp.

Chimpanzees are physically made for tree climbing. Their curved fingers and toes make it much easier for them to grasp onto branches, a trait that we lost a long time ago. An interesting study of a young chimp who was purchased in the 1930s and raised like a human child showed how the curve remained, despite never having been able to climb a tree (poor chimp).
