49 Pictures of Chimps to Brighten Your Day ...

By Neecey

No matter how many stunning photographs of wildlife you see, there is always something special about pictures of chimps. Maybe it is because we see so many human traits in them, or just that generally, they are quite simply, cute. One of the great things about chimpanzees is they seem to love the camera and they're playfulness makes them eminently photogenic. See what I mean with this collection of pictures of chimps.
