People often ask about how much physical contact we have with the chimps. Very little! We never go into an enclosure with the chimps. They have each other for hugs and kisses – they don’t need us. Plus, they are so powerful that even a gentle tap could injure us. We would never put them in that sort of jeopardy. BUT, we do tickle and groom them through the fence (though our fingers never cross the plane of the fencing – we stay on our side of the fence and they stay on theirs!). Jamie really likes to check out people’s shoes… Here’s a pic from this afternoon of her checking out my red clogs!

Sarah I bet if she had a pair she would wear them in a second, something with Jamie and fashion~Clothes, shoes, scarves,socks,purses…she needs her own closet full of clothes and accessories!
LOL Shelly C…Exactly what I was thinking! Jamie does like being girl with all the frills and accesories that make her stand out. I just love her fashion sense and adore seeing her dress up and plunder in her purses. I bet she would be a shoe fanatic!

What a thrill that must be! To be able to interact with these amazing animals must feel like such an honor. Thanks as always for sharing wonderful photographs and snippets of information.
