When it comes to play partners, Burrito tends to prefer his human friends. It is pretty rare to see him join in with the girls’ games (it’s hard to say why — perhaps he’s a little intimidated). Although he spends a fair amount of time grooming and being groomed by the other chimps, once things get playful, he usually withdraws a bit. So I was quite excited this morning when I caught him playing with Foxie in the front rooms. Apparently it looked like such a good time that Jody and Jamie tried to join in, too.

Oh, good for Burrito! He’s finally coming out and interacting with the others. Becoming more of a chimp. What a joyous thing.

You know maybe Burrito’s still a little leery from the big brouhaha, about a year ago, with the ladies. Personally, I see a more comfortable Burrito, more relaxed, from the videos his body language is even different.

I’m so happy that Burrito is expanding his comfort zone!
I love the impending foot bite at the very end….and Foxie’s upside down playing…and ain’t it just like kids to have the most fun with a plastic bowls under the cupboard. Love to see them all so happy and playing. Life is good.

Oh I watched this one over and over!! I love the look on Burrito’s face at the end while going in for the foot bite and Foxie’s smile as she is upside down. It really is good to see Burrito coming out of his shell!!!
