This video shows Foxie outside on a cold (28 degree) day recently. Foxie is often the first to come out when we open the outdoor area. Along with Jamie, Missy and Annie, Foxie will spend some time running around and playing until she gets cold and goes back inside. She will often rub against the platforms like this. I like this video because of the way she rubs her feet together as she hangs upside down. It could be because the bars are cold, but she also did this when it was warm. The bars would be pretty cold for most humans to climb all over, but chimpanzees have thick skin, and they don’t seem deterred by the coldness.

Maybe her hands get moist and she has to keep them dry so she does not slip formt he bars! tahnks Diana for sharing all of the wonderful photos and videos! I went back to work last week after 4 months of sleeping in, so I am trying to get back into the swing of things! They all look wonderful, healthy and happy these days! I see all the trolls have lost their winter coats..LOL! Do they groom them and that is how they become bald, or do they jsut pull the hair off?
