    Chimps don't want to live with you. You know how strong they are? They belong in the jungle, not somebodies house. They may seem human like, But that does mean your suppose to dress them up and keep him in your room. That chimp can kill the **** out of you if you do something he doesn't like. If that did happen, they would have to take him down. That would be sad. An innocent life wasted because someone thought he was a pet. Plus It's probably illegal.

    Let them live in the wild. They are not domesticated animals and we cannot expect them to live like they are!
