Common chimps are omnivorous. They live in equatorial Africa having a way of life which is more arboreal than the gorilla (contrary to what their species name implies: troglodytes = cave-dweller). Common chimps share 99% of their genetic code with humans. Chimps and humans share a common ancestor who lived in Africa, probably around 8-9 million years ago.
