The chimps had their first experience with fresh jackfruit this week and have really been enjoying it! For those not so familiar with this fruit, it is quite large and odd looking. We’ve been cutting the (same!) giant fruit into pieces for the chimps to enjoy for several days now. Negra took her breakfast jackfruit to go this morning. Instead of taking it back to her nest, she opted to bring it with her out onto Young’s Hill where she could eat it with a side of fresh green grass.
In other news, Jamie has delegated herself in charge of quality control for the new structure. I caught her doing some in depth investigation to see if she could possibly break any part of it. She was also smelling all the fire hose suspiciously (this is a very Jamie-like thing to do). Good news! The structure is solidly built and can withstand the strength of a forceful and skeptical chimpanzee.
