Fact of the Saturday – How Do Chimpanzees Populate in Groups?

In the wild, Chimpanzees live in groups called communities; these communities can have from fifteen to 120 chimps, all living together with an appointed alpha male as their leader.

These grows can grow, with new generations of baby chimps everyday. However, most female chimpanzees will have babies, once every five years because of the intense requirement they need from their mothers. In their lifetime, female chimps can four to six babies.

Talk about huge families, hey?
