#EarthOnLocation by @markmacewen_dop
Infant chimpanzees of all ages will spend much of their time socialising
and playing together, building bonds and testing each other for the future 😍

Show of hands who LOVED last night's episode of #Dynasties? πŸ™‹πŸ™‹β€β™‚οΈ Drama, battles, family breakdowns and make-ups; the chimpanzees took us on a rollercoaster of emotion in Senegal, West Africa. There are only a few hundred chimpanzees left in the region due to habitat loss from gold mining and farming, with huge losses to populations seen across Africa.

#EarthOnLocation

A female chimpanzee feeding on termites as her infant watches on to learn how to use grass stems as dipping tools. The bond between mother and baby chimps is incredibly strong and the offspring will often stay with their mother for between seven and ten years. Males stay with their mothers for longer while females leave the group to become mothers themselves. .

#EarthOnLocation by @markmacewen_dop

Chimpanzees are incredibly intelligent and young chimps learn skills from their parents and other elders in the troop. This baby chimp is termite fishing. In the dry season they use grass stems to fish termites out of their mounds, making up a large portion of these chimps diet. .

#EarthOnLocation by @johnbrownimages

It's not easy being alpha. When we start his story, David had been alpha for three years - a time when most alphas get deposed in this group. Chimpanzees will go into battle with one another over mating rights and leadership of their group.

#EarthOnLocation

A baby chimpanzee in Senegal, West Africa. Despite our shared lineage, we share 98% of our DNA with chimps, humans are pushing the animals toward extinction. Chimps have already disappeared completely from four countries and are under pressure in their remaining habitats. Their biggest threats are the illegal wildlife trade and disease. Find out how one family survives against all odds in #Dynasties. Sunday on @bbcone

#EarthOnLocation by Michel Sadiakhou

This is #Dynasties cameraman @markmacewen_dop on assignment for the chimpanzees shoot in West Africa. 'There are moments when you're filming chimpanzees that I wouldn't say you feel in danger, but you suddenly feel that you are no longer in control. They are so much stronger than you, so much faster.' πŸ“Ί #Dynasties starts this Sunday on @BBCOne. Click the link in our bio for Dynasties where you are.
