"Chimpanzees, colloquially called chimps, are two extant hominid species of apes in the genus Pan," according to Wikipedia. "The Congo River divides the native habitats of the two species."

The species are: 1) Common chimpanzee, Pan troglodytes (West and Central Africa) and 2) Bonobo, Pan paniscus (forests of the Democratic Republic of the Congo).

"Chimpanzees are members of the family Hominidae, along with humans, gorillas, and orangutans," according to Wikipedia.

"They split from the human line about four to six million years ago, see Chimpanzee-human last common ancestor.

"Chimpanzees (subtribe Panina) are the closest living relatives to humans (subtribe Hominina); both are members of the tribe Hominini. Chimpanzees are the only known members of the subtribe Panina.

"The two Pan species, bonobo and common chimpanzee, split about one million years ago."
