Thanks to Jane Goodall, the chimpanzees inhabiting Gombe National Park in Tanzania are as famous as Darwin's finches and Pavlov's dribbling dogs. Meet these chimps and follow their daily activities at Discover Chimpanzees, an educational site from the Science Museum of Minnesota and the University of Minnesota. Discover Chimpanzees tells the life stories of the Gombe chimps through photos, comments from researchers, and video capturing the primates' repertoire of behaviors. In more than 20 clips, chimps fish for termites with a stick or play tag with a branch, and a mother tries to soothe a youngster throwing a tantrum.
