Darwin's Chimp by InsaneGelfling Darwin's Chimp by InsaneGelfling
One of the images taken from my series 'Darwin's Primates'. This was part of my degree exhibition.

Common chimpanzee.
Pan troglodytes

RIP Charlie. This image is of dear old Charlie, the mascot for Monkey World in Dorset, he died in May 2008. He was with the sanctuary since it opened and he will be sorely misssed.

He does, but in primates a downturned mouth is actually representative of relaxed facial muscles, showing that he is in fact quite content.
