"It was not exactly human, but it was similar. The same threads of curiosity, understanding, and emotion woven into a complex map. It was nothing like the single-minded hunger instinct of the shark, or the blind rush of sensory input that characterized the bat, for example. Sentient? Self-aware? Able to hold abstract thoughts in its head? Impossible to be sure. In morphing we acquire instinct, but instinct is less important when intelligence is more developed. This mind had very little in the way of instinct. And I sensed a great deal in the way of intelligence."

A chimpanzee is a sentient species native to Earth and a member of the great apes family, along with humans and gorillas. A common chimpanzee was acquired and morphed by all six core Animorphs.

Acquiring[]

"Cassie focused, and the acquiring trance calmed the animal. But Cassie herself was not entirely calm. She looked troubled. I could not tell why. I only noticed that for several seconds she seemed almost to be carrying on a silent argument with herself. But then she focused again and the chimpanzee's eyelids drooped imperceptibly. Its muscles slackened. The food in its hand dropped to the floor as it slumped into the cage's bars. The rest of us made contact while we could. We acquired the chimpanzee."

Usage[]

Yeerk Laboratory Infiltration[]

"But you have not answered my question, Cassie. Is this creature sentient?"
"You don't get it, Ax. See, Cassie's on her own private mission here. She wants to save the chimps. So her usual moralizing doesn't apply. A silence fills the room. Animal lovers. Typical. They care more about animals than they do about humans. If we were doing this for some other reason, we'd have Cassie giving us a bunch of crap about not using sentient creatures."

Chasing Visser Four[]

"I started to morph. Not grizzly. Not elephant. Marco had chosen the wrong weapon. This wasn't a job for brute force. Rough brown fur began to grow from me. I didn't wait for the morph to be completed; I moved. [...] I grabbed a rope. The sailors were incredibly agile, racing up and down the masts and ropes to shift the sails, to replace ropes that had been shot away. Visser Four himself wasn't bad. But now I was a chimpanzee. The human hasn't been born who can touch a chimpanzee in a tree."
