Leopards and lions have been known to kill and eat chimps. However, the most dangerous predator of the chimpanzee is human beings have killed off more chimps than any other animal in the wild. There are several ways in which humans can cause chimpanzee deaths: By killing for food, bypassing on diseases from which the chimps die. What are the Chimpanzee enemy? Coronavirus (COVID-19), Ebola, and by destroying the natural habitats. People cut down rain forest trees in order to use the land for farming and to build houses. As their habitat grows smaller, chimps find it harder to find food, and their numbers decline.
Chimpanzee’s life cycle, the life cycle of an animal covers its birth ton its death and all the different stages in between. Chimpanzee lives for a relatively long time. They can live to around 45 years in the wild and around 60 years in captivity.
Group living has benefits when it comes to reproduction, more group members mean more options for mating. Chimps mate all year long, not only at a certain time of year. But chimpanzee mating is linked to food sources. More mating takes place when there is plenty of food to eat.
Chimps usually give birth to one baby at a time. They are pregnant for about 8 months, just a little shorter than humans. Chimps babies weigh only about 4 pounds (1.8Kilograms). they are helpless and cling to their mother much like human babies.
From about six months onward, they ride on their mother’s backs. They do this until they are about two years old. Like all primates, female chimps feed their babies milk from their bodies until young chimps are five, they depend on their mothers for food.
