Chimpanzees are naturally found in areas bordering the Congo River. Furthermore, there are two species of chimpanzees, the common chimpanzee (Pan troglodytes) and the bonobo (Pan paniscus). The former is found in West and Central Africa, while the latter resides in the forests of the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Chimpanzees can also be found in captivity in zoos around the world.
