Chimps are just as intelligent as us Deafies, maybe not as skilled in ASL, however had an opportunity to meet the English primatologist, Jane Goodall, at the O'Neill Center (Connecticut) where she gave a lecture on her fifty years experience in the field observing chimps in the wilds of Tanzania, and found that they share the same traits as we human beings, in terms of emotions, social order, and individual personalities, etc. Perhaps the ability to reason is the only thing that separates us.
