Origin of chuman
Blend of chimpanzee and human. Chuman is most associated with the chimp Oliver (c.1958–2012), who was the subject of much attention in the 1970s because his owners suspected that Oliver was a hybrid of human and chimpanzee. Testing performed in 1968 showed that Oliver was genetically normal and that his secondary characteristics were within normal limits for chimpanzees
