Following the evolutionary split of hominins (bonobos and chimpanzees) our ancestors gradually transitioned to a more terrestrial lifestyle, but the selective pressures leading to this shift remain poorly understood. Eventually, the increased terrestriality of hominins would have involved sleeping on the ground, perhaps in ground nests, as we see today in the gorillas and some populations of chimpanzees. Given the large number of predators living in the Pliocene, it remains uncertain how small-bodied hominins would have managed to sleep on the ground. Is the taming of fire and the change of diet, which happened approximately 2 million years ago, the necessary precondition for this innovation? Direct evidence still needs to be included. To better understand the selective pressures that favor ground nesting in a living mid-sized hominid species, we studied chimpanzees in Uganda.
