Since the chimps were relocated I have wondered what they think about snow and what they would call it had they learned ASL. White water cold?
The real experiment would be to see how wild chimps never exposed to cold snow would react. That, of course, will never happen.
As we all know these chimps do not have wild chimp backgrounds and it is possible that some of them did see and experience in snow years before if his/her past was within human family or show environment.

They do love eating snow! How about some snow cones with Good Belly juice? Bet they would love that!

I was thinking the same thing, Candy….and wondering about a painting.

What jumped into my mind when looking at that last photo of Jamie was, “yup – 98% the same DNA.”

I’m so glad they enjoy the snow! And to see it falling without bars on the window…how fun is that??? Love the photos JB, thanks.

Ha ha, funny Gayle. Yes, I love that last photo (although I still can’t tell these gals apart!) It snowed here today too. Maybe tomorrow I’ll go out and behave a little more like the chimpanzees…
