The mandible and cranium of our chimpanzee skull are separate pieces, designed for ease of study from all angles. This is one in a collection of four full size replicas from Skullduggery’s primate series. Their realism keeps this series an ever popular one. These skulls are life-size, exact replicas.
Chimpanzees are members of the Hominidae family, along with gorillas, humans, and orangutans. Chimpanzees split from the human branch of the family about 4 to 6 million years ago. The two chimpanzee species are the closest living relatives to humans, all being members of the Hominini tribe (along with extinct species of Hominina subtribe). Chimpanzees are the only known members of the Panina subtribe. The two Pan species split only about one million years ago.
