Play is a very important part of any animal, even us! It helps us to learn important skills, build bonds, and to have fun. Chimps are no different and they are very similar to young humans when they play. They’re so similar they would probably have a great time if they were to play together!
While the majority of play is with young chimps, adults also like some fun, often joining in to play with younger members of their community. They wrestle, chase each other, and many other fun activities. Being chased up a tree is very good practice to develop their tree climbing skills. They also play with the tools used by the older chimps, using play to learn how to use them.
Chimps also have another very human characteristic when it comes to play, they laugh. They have what is called a ‘play-pant’ and if you didn’t know any better you could easily mistake it for laughter. Whether they’re being tickled or chased it can be great fun and their face cracks a huge smile. If things get a bit scary the baby can scream and mum will come running to save the day!
