Bonding With The Chimps

Bonding With The Chimps

Today was pretty frigid here at Chimps Inc. I even saw a few snowflakes falling in the late afternoon. The chimps were able to play outside while the sun was out and shining. Emma made herself a nest inside the tunnels outside, right where the sun could reach her. once the sun went behind the clouds though, all the chimps moved indoors to make new nests. Herbie was enjoying himself in the indoor enclosure as he was lying on his back with his feet sticking straight in the air. He was watching a movie that we turned on about chimps.

I was able to bond a bit with CJ. She was nestled in the corner of an indoor enclosure, but once I got a bubble wand out she rushed to the front to try and catch the bubbles with her tongue. Patti and Topo also seemed to enjoy the bubbles. Even Jackson came to the front to join in. It’s been a good day here at Chimps Inc. I am honored to be one of the few people who have been able to blow bubbles with chimpanzees.
