Latest comment: INTERESTING!!! Chimpanzees are social primates, therefore one might think they might co-operate more and share, but I suppose there is competition within social groups for important resources i.e. food. Orang-utans, on the other hand, are non-social primates and are known to share food resources. This might be because there is no competition for food in their natural habitat; prior to the deforestation of their habitat to grow palm oil.
