Generous Herbie

I’m in the last few days of my internship here and as the weather has been warming up the chimps have loved all the sun and heat and I have loved watching them relax. The other day as I was walking around feeding chow biscuits I noticed that not a single chimp was inside and I don’t blame them it has been so beautiful here the past few days. As I made my way to Herbie’s group they were all relaxing in the garden enclosure. It was so peaceful, as I walked up of course Emma was the first one ready for chow, I no longer have to even call for her she follows me and is just so eager for those biscuits. After I gave Emma, Jackson and Patti their chow it was Herbie’s turn and he was definitely ready. He came and sat next to Emma and after I gave him his first piece he immediately gave it to Emma, It was so amusing to watch because every piece after that Emma would stick out her hand out to see if he was still in the giving mood. Herbie ended up giving her about two pieces of his chow, I think that was the first time I had seen something like that happen.
