This article is about an older version of DF.
A large ape which lives in the tropical forests. It lives in complex social groups of many members. Though it is quite intelligent, it has been known for ferocious attacks.

Chimpanzees are social animals found in tropical forest biomes that visit your fortress in clusters of five to ten individuals. Chimpanzees have a good pet value of 500, and can be tamed with an animal trainer; this makes capturing and taming them a desirable activity. They can live up to eighty years, so a dwarf that takes a chimpanzee as a pet will have it a long time. Young chimpanzees only take two years to reach full size, but require a full ten years to reach adulthood.

In combat they can be dangerous when in a group: an unarmed peasant will usually prevail over a solitary chimpanzee, but generally falls to two or more. Usually, there are two or more. Simple solution: don't send out unarmed peasants to fight chimpanzees raw, unless they really deserve it.

Some dwarves prefer chimpanzees for their antics.
