Asked in Chimpanzees
Are chimpanzees classified as humanoids or hominids?
Hominid - the group consisting of all modern and extinct Great Apes (that is, modern humans, chimpanzees, gorillas and orang-utans plus all their immediate ancestors). Hominin - the group consisting of modern humans, extinct human species and all our immediate ancestors (including members of the genera Homo, Australopithecus, Paranthropus and Ardipithecus).
Asked in Chimpanzees, Evolution, Human Origins
If evolution is true then why there is no species excisting in between chimpansie and human?
Humans did not evolve from chimpanzees, rather both humans and chimpanzees share a common ancestor. A division happened with this common ancestor....some went on to become chimpanzees and some went on to become modern humans. There are common ancestors to both humans and chimps, but they are long extinct.
Asked in Collective Nouns
What is the collective noun for a group of apes and chimpanzees?
The high degree of similarity between chimpanzee and human DNA suggests that?
Humans and chimpanzees share 94% of the same DNA. By comparing certain genes of chimpanzees to those of humans, scientists can tell the approximate number of generations since humans and chimpanzees shared a common ancestor. It is believed that the ancestors of humans and chimpanzees diverged between four and six million years ago. In other words, it is support for evolution and the fact that humans evolved from great apes.

Which are the general characteristics of a chimpanzee orangutan and the man?
Asked in Chimpanzees
Did humans evolve from chimpanzees?
Humans did not evolve from chimpanzees. Humans share a common ancestor with modern African apes, like gorillas and chimpanzees. Scientists believe this common ancestor existed 5 to 8 million years ago. Shortly thereafter, the species diverged into two separate lineages. One of these lineages ultimately evolved into gorillas and chimps, and the other evolved into early human ancestors called hominids.
Do you believe that man came from apes?
No, man did not descend from apes, at least not the modern apes that we know. However, there is overwhelming evidence, both from the fossil record and from DNA, that man is descended from the same common ancestor as the apes. Our ancestors diverged from the ancestors of chimpanzees around seven million years ago.
