How do different species of primates interact with each other?

    Chimpanzees are notorious for their hostility to other primates that encroach on their territorial. Male chimpanzees commonly gather into hunting parties to patrol their territories. If they come across any other primates, even other chimps, they will attack, even kill them in order to protect their territory. I’ve even seen videos of males chimps cannibalizing baby enemy chimpanzees. This is unique because it is an example from nature that could help explain our aggressive demeanor, particularly to those that we do not feel close to. We think of humans as the only animals that go to war but chimps do it as well, although usually for far more Darwinian reasons than humans.
