The West African Jungle, located across Côte d'Ivoire, Liberia, Sierra Leone, Guinea and Guinea-Bissau, is the native home to the Western chimpanzee. It was home to chimpanzees Alpha and Bright Eyes, along with the other members of their troop. This was where Caesar was conceived. The jungle was filled with other animals such as birds and others, but was primarily left to the primitive chimps. One day while the chimps were foraging for food Alpha noticed that the birds were flying away, and to their surprise poachers were near the troop and planned to capture them to sell them on the black market or as bushmeat. The poachers were lead by "the Dutchman", along with Karega, Nderu and others, and they all wanted to kill the whole troop after Alpha established his dominance to protect his troop.

The poachers attacked the troop and using snare nets and cages, Bright Eyes and many other chimpanzees were captured by the poachers. Alpha was shot by Karega while trying to rescue his mate. The fate of the rest of the chimpanzees is unknown. Bright Eyes' fate was to be shipped off to San Francisco to the Gen-Sys Laboratories where she was a test subject for the gene therapy called ALZ-112. She died shortly after ALZ-112 testing and giving birth to Caesar, who inherited the ALZ-112 from her and Alpha's white skin birthmark over his chest. The design of the walls of the infirmary and exercise enclosure at the San Bruno Primate Shelter was quite similar to the jungle, so the apes might feel free and in their natural habitat, away from the humans' cruel exploitation.

TriviaEdit

Map of democratic-republic-of-congo

The Democratic Republic of Congo (formerly Zaire) is the Central African nation which is the native home to some sub-species of Common chimpanzee and to bonobos. The antecedents of Koba must have come from here, though he himself was born in captivity. This was also the home of mercenary and hunter Malakai Youmans, where the Simian Flu Pandemic caused an outbreak of ethnic and tribal warfare.
