A study suggests that chimpanzees who lose their mother can face lifelong setbacks just like humans

Scientists in Ivory Coast’s Tai National Park found that male infants who lost their mothers, even as juveniles, had fewer offspring and were less competitive as adults.

According to Phys. Org,They kept full demographic records and collected fecal samples to determine paternity on members of three distinct communities for more than 30 years.

Researchers observed three chimpanzee communities of the Tai National Park and claimed that even when offspring are old enough to take care of basic necessities themselves, their mothers are still teaching them advanced foraging techniques and social skills necessary to thrive.
