What does the Gombe Chimpanzee War say about our past?
The Gombe Chimpanzee War The conflict happened from 1974-1978 between two communities of chimpanzees in Gombe Stream National Park, Tanzania, the namesake of the war.

Another species is capable of pre-meditated genocide 3. Another species has the mental capability to strategically plan the extermination of a rival tribe. 4. Another species has what we would describe as "tribes" But what does this say about humankind? Assuming we share a common ancestor - could this war be an indicator of a commonality between our two species that is far more ancient than we expected? Let's take a look and see.
