Chimps are our (humans) closest relative in the wildlife. We even have 99 percent same DNA. Like us they too live in social communities and can walk on two legs too. They too make tools and can easily adapt themselves easily in different environments and also they reach the reproduction age at around same time like human i.e. 13 for female and 16 for males.
