There’s no denying Missy’s love of tomatoes, as Diana mentioned in her blog post recently, but today, all of the chimpanzees showed their love for Missy’s favorite food.
As soon as caregiver Katelyn walked into the garden, Missy was quick to get in position for Katelyn to serve her.
Jamie quickly joined Missy at the window directly above where the plants are growing to get her share.
Foxie realized what was happening and joined Missy and Jamie.
It quickly became apparent to Katelyn that there was not enough room left in the window for the other chimpanzees. So, she moved over to the barn doors to serve the tomatoes. It didn’t take long for Negra, who was sleeping on the catwalk right above the window overlooking the plants, to climb down to get some tomatoes as well.
Jody approached the barn doors to join in on the tomato fun with Negra on her left and Foxie on her right.
As soon as Burrito and Annie realized Katelyn was serving tomatoes by the barn doors, they quickly joined the party. But, somehow they managed to avoid the camera and I am left with no photographic evidence of them eating any of the tomatoes (although I promise you, I saw tomatoes in their mouths).
