No. Chimpanzees belong to a totally different primate family from monkeys, called hominidae, or great apes. This category is shared with humans,gorillas,bonobos,and orangutans. The main difference is, monkeys have tails, apes do not.
There are twenty-four extant species of apes. Seventeen of these are classified as Lesser Apes, seven as Great Apes. When someone mentions "apes," the automatic thought of the average person is often 'Chimpanzees, Gorillas, and Orangutans.'
No! Chimpanzees are great apes, along with Bonobos, Gorillas, Orangutans, and Humans. Monkeys are physically quite different from apes--one of the easiest ways to tell a monkey from an ape is that a monkey has a tail. An ape does not.
Yes, chimpanzees have backbones. Chimpanzees are one of the great apes, just like humans. The great apes and all other mammals are part of a larger group called vertebrates. The defining feature of a vertebrate is that it has a backbone.
Gibbons are part of the Lesser Apes along with the Siamang. It separates them from the Great Apes (humans, chimpanzees, bonobos, orangutans and gorillas), but they are still part of the Hominoidea, or Apes.
They are mammals, they are not monkeys but similar. They have no tails, they are pretty smart, there are different species of apes such as gorillas, orangutan's and chimpanzees and some people believe that we evolved from apes and some people don't.
