Someone I know of has this for sale. I don't think it is legal in any shape form or fashion. What do yall know about them? I guess it's possible it's not even a chimp. So do yall think it's a chimp? "I do"

I do not know much about primate skulls but from what I could find, if anything it is a young chimpanzee as it looks nothing like an adult skull.
This is supposedly a young one and it looks quite similar.

And it would definitely not be legal as they are highly endangered/protected cites species. i.e. no trade or buying allowed.
I suppose if you got one legally from a zoo and they gave you the cites papers with it then it would be legal.

I seriously doubt a private citizen would ever be able to legally get one of those, and there's no way that selling it would be allowed. Should call FWS on him and see what they think

What about private US citizens who have had "pet" chimps now or in the past, after the ESA?  Could it have been from one of those?  Like the lady who had her "pet" chimp ripped her face off.

It could be a bonobo, they're a bit different looking than chimps. They too however would be illegal I believe.

I didn't buy it. It was just to risky for my blood.
