The chimps have been playing all day today. While we were cleaning the playroom, Foxie and Jamie played “ghost under the sheet” and tickled each other:
Later, when the chimps went outside, there was a lot of jumping:
…and some foot-biting:
Finally, Foxie hung upside down from the roof with a troll head in her mouth:
Firstly, this sequence is just amazing!! Great job JB!! You’ve caught them so realistically I can hear the laughter and the shuffling in the straw!! The flying lady is fantastic, especially with her catcher! And the smiles and playfaces!! One really gets a sensation of chimp life and play.
Secondly, on a personal note, could you order up a playful day the next time I’m volunteering??? I seem to be working on laid back day were lying in the sun is the favored activity!!
Just a thought!! Seriously, great sequence and so wonderful to see happy, playful people enjoying life!!

I wish I could do any of the stuff they do!!! Thanks for the wonderful pictures JB. I could also hear the hoots and swats while looking at the play. This just made my day!
It is so heartening to see our pals frolicking and having fun. I liked the series. It really captures the movement. It always brightens my day to see a new post. Thanks for sharing their lives with us.
Excellent pictures JB! I can hear the chimp laughter as they play. I always hope for pictures or a video when I come to the blog. I never tire of looking at the chimps having fun and being chimps. They have come such a long way in just 7 months. It’s incredible to see them coming out of their shells. There is no doubt they are all happy chimps thanks to you all! You all rock!!
Too, too funny! Looks like quite the romp!
It’s such a heartwarming sign of both their physical and mental health that they are engaging in so much play.
Wow!!! 9 pictures all at once!! 🙂 And they are all wonderful….I love them all!!! It’s easy to see that the Cle Elum 7 are so happy and content in their new home! As Anna said, it is very heartwarming to see! Thank you, JB, for the great photos!!

Hilarious! I love the sequence shots, it’s *almost* as good as being there. Thanks as always for sharing the joy 🙂
What a bug rumpus day! Were all the chimps in on this or were some of the more “dignified” chimps content to watch their friends rip around?
I’m exhausted just looking at the photos!!!!!! What a wonderful, happy day. Thank you for sharing!!
