Scientists have witnessed chimpanzees killing gorillas for the first time in two shocking attacks caught on video at a national park in Gabon on the west coast of Central Africa, a new study finds.

The researchers, from Osnabrck University and the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology in Germany, were following a massive group of 27 chimpanzees (Pan troglodytes) on Feb. 6, 2019 when they first observed the chimps attack a party of five western lowland gorillas (Gorilla gorilla gorilla) — three adult females and one infant, led by a male silverback.
