I love taking photos and video of the chimpanzees running around, being active, and getting into mischief. Active chimpanzees are generally happy chimpanzees, and when I watch them explore and run I think of all of the years they lived in small cages.
There’s also something incredible, though, about watching the chimps truly relax.
Today the sun is streaming into the playroom and seems to be making Jamie and Negra very sleepy.
Jamie, in typical Jamie fashion, is curled up in her nest with boots and toys:
Of course, being Jamie, this nap is not going to last very long:
Negra is in her spot on the catwalk of the playroom in front of the window – feet up in the air:
Doesn’t this just make you want to join them in relaxing in the sun?
