The chimpanzees all have different techniques for foraging out on Young’s Hill. Most of them will take multiple trips and comb every inch of the ground and structures for every bit of produce and primate chow.
This is not Negra’s technique.
When Negra forages she usually heads for one area and picks up whatever she can see, then heads back to her comfortable nest in the greenhouse. Being active and exploring (even if it means more food), is not Negra’s normal style. She has more of a one and done technique, and you might imagine she doesn’t always come away with a ton of food. This afternoon’s lunch forage paid off big for her though. When we opened the door to Young’s Hill, she rushed to just the right spot and made off with a whole bushel of fresh carrots.
