Chimps live in communities. These communities are composed of family groups of three to six individuals, totaling about 50 animals. Hierarchies are formed by the adult males of the community, which is led by one alpha (the highest) male. Adolescent females may move freely between communities, although territory is strictly patrolled and conflicts can occur between neighbors.

Scientists have reported watching a chimp clean her son's teeth after he died, the first time that animals have been seen behaving in that way.

First case of lethal female aggression seen in orangutans. A female orangutan was attacked and killed by another female and a male – the first time lethal aggression has been seen between females of the species.  Female orangutans are normally solitary, and very rarely engage in fights. It’s also unusual for females and males to form coalitions. Aggression between orangutans may increase due to pressures from habitat destruction.
