Pan paniscus NatureServe Explorer Species Reports — NatureServe Explorer is a source for authoritative conservation information on more than 50,000 plants, animals and ecological communtities of the U.S and Canada. NatureServe Explorer provides in-depth information on rare and endangered species, but includes common plants and animals too. NatureServe Explorer is a product of NatureServe in collaboration with the Natural Heritage Network. In addition, P. troglodytes is divided into four subspecies, while P. paniscus is undivided. Based on genome sequencing, these two extant Pan species diverged around one million years ago.  Muscle is overall the heaviest body tissue in P. paniscus and underpins locomotor function (14, 54, 65). Muscle mass is notably sexually dimorphic, with females ranging between 30.1% and 44.1%
The most obvious differences are that chimpanzees are somewhat larger, more aggressive
