Humans aren't the only species who get choosier about their friends as they age. Chimps do it too, new research suggests.

A group of male chimpanzees grooms together in Uganda's Kibale National Forest. Kakama, on the left, is the dominant male in the group. Ronan Donovan Humans tend to cultivate fewer, more meaningful friendships as we grow older. A prevailing psychological theory suggests this is because we recognize our impending mortality and seek to prioritize emotionally fulfilling connections in the time we have left. A new study found that male chimpanzees similarly winnow their friendships as they...
