Once when she was little she went in to the hen house and observed a chicken that was about to lay an egg. She was in there for many hours. Her mother was about to report report that she was missing. When Jane's mother was about to call the police Jane ran into the house. Jane's life dream was to go to Africa and observe animals in the forests. Jane Goodall made a club with her friends when she was little. It was called the Alligator Club. Jane, Judy , Sue Carry and Sally were apart of this club. They couldn't go to Africa or the zoo since they were very far away, so they observed wildlife close to the house. The Alligator club started the begining of Jane Goodall's adventure and observations.

The Chimpanzees

Jane Goodall had named each Chimanzee she saw. Their names were Goliath the leader, David Greybeard the tool using chimp, Passion, Flo the mother of Fifi and Frodo 2 baby chimps. Jane's breakthrough in research was when David Greybeard used a piece of grass as bait to get termites for his meal. Goliath is a very agressive chimpanzee that wants to be the leader of the group. Also Jane Goodall found out that Chimpanzees are ominavores. One day Flo killed a baby wart hog and fed it to her babies. These were the most amazing information and science about our closest primates.
