What do chimpanzees eat?
Like humans, chimpanzees are omnivores. That means they eat all sorts of vegetarian food as well as animals. The list of food items is long: fruits, nuts, leaves, plants, mushrooms, flowers, insects, meat and more.

Some of these foods they have to prepare before eating. They chew some fruits to form little fruit-balls, called 'wadges', and then dip them in water before sucking out the juice.
