Here’s a video of the chimps coming out for Burrito’s party. You’ll see (and hear) Burrito being very excited! I’m not sure if we’d posted video before of the bipedal behavior you’ll see in this video. He grabs the outside of his thighs and side-steps around. This is not a natural chimpanzee behavior. It may be one that he made up on his own, or it may be something he was taught to do during his years as an entertainer. He does it a lot when he’s excited about his favorite thing – FOOD!
PS. Special thanks to Shelly C for providing lots and lots of the produce!
