This plush adult chimp stuffed animal is a near reproduction of the chimpanzee. The chimpanzee (Pan troglodytes) or simply "chimp", is a species of great ape native to the forest and savannah of tropical Africa. Evidence from fossils and DNA sequencing shows that Pan is a sister taxon to the human lineage and is humans' closest living relative. The chimpanzee is listed on the IUCN Red List as an endangered species. Between 170,000 and 300,000 individuals are estimated across its range. The biggest threats to the chimpanzee are habitat loss, poaching, and disease.
