    Chimpanzee, sometimes colloquially chimp, is the common name for the two extant hominid species of apes in the genus Pan. The Congo River forms the boundary between the native habitats of the two species: ⁕Common chimpanzee, Pan troglodytes ⁕Bonobo, Pan paniscus Chimpanzees are members of the Hominidae family, along with gorillas, humans, and orangutans. Chimpanzees split from the human branch of the family about four to six million years ago.

The two Pan species split only about one million years ago.
