The chimps all have different ways of interacting with the natural world. Jamie seems to revel in the opportunities that nature provides. If the rest of the gang would join her, she’d stay out all day hiking, climbing, exploring. There is territory to defend and there are squirrels to hunt (she hasn’t caught one outside yet, not for lack of trying).
Unfortunately for Jamie (but fortunately for the deer), some parts of nature will always be out of reach. When that happens, the best you can do is sit back and observe.
Jody loves being outside in the natural world, but sometimes she’d rather take hers to go. Every day, she breaks off a piece of bamboo and drags it inside so that she can enjoy it from the comfort of the greenhouse. To each her own.
Gorgeous photos, JB!
This last one of JoJo is very good, she looks so relaxed as only Jody can do.
Oh my, the pictures of Jody enjoying that bamboo are adorable!
Loved this post. The very last of photo of Jody caught me by surprise and brought a tear to my eyes! So lovely, especially when you consider where she has come from. That delicate piece of bamboo must taste and smell like nectar of the Gods!
