Description

Grooming is an incredibly important part of chimp life. Not only is it important to stay clean and tidy, but it’s also a fantastic way to strengthen bonds, build alliances, and relax. Chimps can spend a few minutes and even up to a few hours grooming each other, maintaining friendly ties between the community.

To groom, a chimp will remove all dirt, plants, dry skin, and insects from another. In a way, it is a bit like getting a massage or taking a nice bath and is a very relaxing process for the chimp being pampered. Using one hand to part the hair, the chimp will use its other hand and occasionally teeth to remove the unwanted materials.

Grooming is also used to calm a chimp down when it becomes stressed. Infants are groomed during weaning; adults can be groomed to make up after a conflict. Smaller males who could never rely on physical attacks use grooming to build alliances in the community to protect themselves from larger males.
