And now we'll love them to death.

I hope they tag every chimp they see.

They'll never make a monkey out of me.

... And I hate everyone of them.

Oh my God, I was wrong...

It was Earth all a-long!

You'd think that, as a society, we'd come to realize how hurtful to these people this kind of labelling is. Can't we just call them "indigenous" or "natives"?

So they assume that all the chimps that live in a 50,000 sq km area are one colony? Seems unlikely.

Man, a whole metropolis of chimps!
Do they have their own municipal government?
Do they drive around in cars made out of bamboo & coconut shells?
Are they as insulted of the antics of Rob Ford as us humans?

/too many questions

Did we miss them because they had an invisibility dome over their city? Where's Grodd?

Is there anything like an anti-HOTY category?

Chimpanzees are vicious creatures.  All the wanton evil of humans, but with fangs and superhuman strength.  I will never be in a room with one of those things.  I'd rather face a hundred Walking Dead zombies than one chimp.

Did you read the article?  Colonies each have distinctive communication and foraging methods.

I was going to peg this as incredibly racist and then I noticed that in the caption, "scrimps" had been changed to "chimps".  Totally not racist anymore.
