The chimpanzee, it is the one of the smaller great apes after the gorilla and orangutan. There are two species of chimps the common chimpanzee, and the bonobo. The male common chimp stands up to 1.2 m (3.9 ft) high and weighs as much as 70 kg (150 lb), although there are exceptionally males that can reach 1.7 m (5.5 ft) tall and weight up to 200 lb. The female is somewhat smaller. The common chimp’s long arms, when extended, span one and a half times the body’s height. A chimpanzee's arms are longer than its legs. The bonobo is slightly shorter and thinner than the common chimpanzee but has longer limbs. In trees, both species climb with their long, powerful arms; on the ground. Although they normally walk on all fours (knuckle-walking), chimpanzees can stand and walk upright. By swinging from branch to branch they can also move quite efficiently in the trees, where they do most of their eating.
