It felt like spring had arrived early here at the sanctuary yesterday and most of the chimpanzees spent much of the day roaming Young’s Hill. Today, however, we definitely awoke to winter with light snow and much colder temperatures. When I arrived at the chimp house this morning no one was even awake yet, not even Boss Jamie, and this is pretty unusual.
Missy spent most of the morning testing out other people’s nests, (well, Negra’s nests), something she commonly does. I can’t tell you how many times I greeted Negra in her usual spots this morning only to find it wasn’t the real Neggie, but Fake Neggie. But it seems appropriate that the Queen might have some pretty wonderful nests so I don’t blame Missy a bit.
