(Note from Sarah: So sorry! I thought I had posted this yesterday but apparently it didn’t go through!) What’s better on a summer day than watermelon and sunshine? Watermelon, sunshine, and a troll doll (being held in her foot)!

When we say that a chimpanzee is “displaying,” we referring to the behaviors chimps use to show us that they’re in charge. For Burrito, this typically includes standing up bipedally (on two legs), pilo erect hair (puffing up to look bigger), running around, and usually banging or jumping off of something. It’s quite impressive to watch. We didn’t see Burrito display for quite a while after the chimps first arrived. It’s hard to imagine that these days, since we see him showing us who’s in charge many times a day! It’s so amazing to see him feel comfortable and confident enough to do what he’s supposed to do
