This morning I spread out two fresh bales of straw (courtesy of Denice and Suncadia!) and then Keith and I scattered peanuts and freshly dried raisins for the chimps to snack on. In the wild, they’d spend their entire day going from tree to tree looking for food. We can’t give them the trees of Africa, but at least we can keep ’em busy in the straw. Burrito seems to point out at the end that nosy girls with cameras would NOT be welcome in his tree!

So nice to see them foraging ~ and so glad the weather is still nice enough for them to be outside 🙂 Yeah, at the end there, you must’ve gotten too close to Burrito’s nuts and raisens! 😉

What a great way to spend the day. Thank you for showing us, Sarah. Burrito, you crack me up. Were you afraid Sarah would want some of your stash?
It’s great to see them foraging and being chimps. You may not be able to give them the trees of Africa but you have given them so much more than anyone else has. Burrito is a sneaky guy. While you were watching the others he was watching you. He definitely let you know the raisins and peanuts were off limits to hoomans….LOL
Is this Burrito defending his ladies from intruders, or does he just get cranky when the camera comes around?
