About

Hailing from the forested regions of Africa, chimpanzees are estimated to share 98 percent of our DNA. Chimpanzees are known for their complex social structure and behaviors. You can observe our troupe of 13 in their three acre, forested exhibit in the Africa section of the Zoo near the Sky Safari.
