Chimpanzees are vertebrate mammals that live in rainforests. They live in groups with dozens of members and spend a lot of time in the canopy of trees. Chimps sleep on trees and eat fruits, nuts, eggs, and even other monkeys. They are land animals and hate to swim. Changes in climate due to rising temperatures and rising seas may cause the rainforest to flood, making it marsh-like. I predict that such changes over a period of a thousand years will cause the anatomy of the chimps to evolve in order to adapt to their new environment. Chimp’s feet would become webbed. They would learn to swim regularly and their eating habits would change to fish, crabs, seaweed, and other creatures that live in water. The chimps’ coloring would become lighter because you are what you eat. The chimps would build nests in dry areas of the marshes.
