Solar Powered Patti

Solar Powered Patti

Sometimes, all a chimp needs is a hardy dose of natural vitamin D.  All of the animals at Chimps Inc. were rewarded with blue skies and warm rays of sun.  After what seemed like weeks of clouds, wind and rain, this day has been appreciated by all.  Of those to step outside first, alpha female, “Patti,” was most excited to enjoy the Big Outdoors. Throughout the day, she has been observed foraging for fruits and nuts while intermittently bathing in the sun.  She plucked and nibbled on a collection of fresh sunflowers, a delightful and novel treat this time of year.  The photo you see was taken earlier today.  Before checking out the termite mound, Patti sat quietly and spent several minutes looking up, down and all around.  From the human eye, she appeared to be loving the sun.
