Chimpanzee Cannibalism – Planet Earth – BBC Earth


At 150 strong this community of Chimps is the biggest yet found in Africa. Their numbers are so large they need a big territory with plenty of Fig trees, and they are willing to fight for it. Along with David Attenborough we get to witness the incredible stealth and brutality of a Chimp raid.

  1. I thought chimpanzees were the sweetest things ever as a child until I watched a natgeo documentary where this baby chimp was snatched away from her mother and repeatedly banged on a tree and bitten on its face before the chimps tore it apart and ate it. Childhood ruined. Cried like a baby. 😭
