I’m always amazed at Missy’s dainty fingers, plus she rescued a blue-haired troll to boot. I still can’t get over how well built that tub is because I always expect it to tip over with their weight, but it doesn’t, good choice Tamela.

Every day I think we have the best video yet! 🙂 Jody getting up on the side of the big tub. I wondered if she might get in since it is so hot. But no, she is consistent. She doesn’t want to be in water. That Negra with the cotton shawl draped around her and secured on her arms! I loved the way she sucked on her fingers. It looked like she had a scrubbing brush in the water. Did she do any scrubbing? And Annie giving the blue haired troll a bath! Priceless.

I love watching them with enrichment. You never know what to expect. That big tub is strong enough to hold their weight and should last a long time. Do the chimps like Jello? Fruit and jello in small buckets would be fun to watch!

J.B. perhaps should have included who was doing what in the video. It opens with Annie and Jody at the tub and Foxie in the background. Jody is the one who circles around the tub and puts her arm in the water to fetch cherries. Then it cuts to Annie climbing on the tub, perching herself on the ledge and dunking her face in. Next is Jamie on the ledge with the bucket – she tricked those trying to identify her in the video by wearing a sheet “Negra-style.” The way Jamie licks her fingers is very Jamie. She did scrub a bit. The video ends with Missy up on the catwalk dipping trolls. I also saw her suck on the troll hair 😉
I don’t think we’ve given the chimps jello since we avoid sugar and artificial sweeteners. They’re really happy with fresh and frozen fruits and veggies!

Thanks to Candy & Diana for your welcome messages. Its great to be able to watch them so relaxed and always amazes me how they adapt to whatever enrichment is there to use. I love how sometimes one might move a little slower as if not sure exactly whats on offer,but then pile in once its ok. Excellent clips as ever,thanks and enjoy the rest of your day.
