Historical comments referring to the invention of Pan paniscus even if by chance or through layout, it used to be so much lucky that Robert M. Yerkes, the dean of yank primatologists, must have been the 1st scientist to explain the features of a pygmy chimpanzee, which he obtained in August 1923, while he bought him and a tender girl spouse from a broker in big apple.
