A Chimpanzee or Pan troglodytes has a head and body length ranging between 635 and 925 mm. When standing erect, they are 1 to 1.7 m tall. The arms are long, such that the spread of the arms is 1.5 times the height of an individual.
Legs are shorter than are the arms, which allows Chimpanzee or Pan troglodytes to walk on all fours with the anterior portion of the body higher than the posterior.
Chimpanzee or Pan troglodytes have very long hands and fingers, with short thumbs. This hand morphology allows chimpanzees to use their hands as “hooks” while climbing, without interference from the thumb.
In trees, chimpanzee or Pan troglodytes may move by swinging from their arms, in a form of brachiation. Although useful in locomotion, the shortness of the thumb relative to the fingers prevents precision grip between the index finger and thumb. Instead, fine manipulations require the Pan troglodytes to using the middle finger in opposition to the thumb.
Chimpanzee or Pan troglodytes have prominent ears, and a prominent superorbital crest. This gives the brows a somewhat rigid and bony appearance. Cranial capacity of these animals ranges from 320 to 480 cc.
The Pan troglodytes lips protrude and are very flexible, allowing an individual to accomplish many tasks through labial manipulation. Dentition is typical of primates. Their dental arch is square in shape, and there is a prominent diastema.
Chimpanzee or Pan troglodytes canines are large, as are molars. Molars decrease in size toward the back of the mouth.
The face of an adult is typically black, or mottled with brown. Hair is black to brown, and there is no underfur present. There may be some white hairs around the face.
