Chimps - Good Luck Minis®
Chimpanzees are the most common of the great apes, a group that also includes gorillas and orangutans. However, even Chimps are endangered, a reflection of their diminishing habitat and threats from hunting and disease. Chimps develop slowly, with babies hanging to their mothers until 2 and not reaching maturity until their teen years. This slow rate of growth, unfortunately, contributes to their classification as endangered, for chimps cannot quickly replace population losses. They are completely protected by national and international law, but many chimps live outside of national parks and are affected by changes in land use.
