A Photoshoot With The Chimps

A Photoshoot With The Chimps

A bright sunny day makes for a great opportunity for the chimpanzees to enjoy a late morning forage in the Big Outdoors enclosure. With plenty of donated greens and fruit to spread around the large enclosure, the chimps were in for a treat! Emma was first to go out and enjoy the healthy delights, and soon she and Thiele were sitting on the hill and tucking in. Judging by the six oranges that Thiele had in her hands and feet, I think I can guess what her favourite fruit is! Herbie checked all around the enclosure- no tasty treats would be allowed to go unnoticed, before joining us to enjoy his meal by the fence. Jackson being Jackson, food quickly became a low priority when he realised just how many potential playmates had come along to watch the chimps enjoy their forage. He was on fine form running around and pulling faces in his usual silly way. As all the good bits had been taken, the chimps came up to the fence to see if any extra goodies were coming their way, and they were in
luck! Emma happily tucked into a few extra strawberries while Herbie impressed us all by catching cherry tomatoes in his gaping mouth. It was lovely to take advantage of such a beautiful day and spend some time enjoying a chimp forage in the sunshine.
