One of the chimpanzees’ front rooms was closed off for maintenance recently. For seven straight days, the chimps watched as Co-Directors J.B. and Diana stripped the walls and gave the room a facelift. Most of the chimps took it in stride, but boss Jamie is always very interested when maintenance is happening, and she did not appreciate being locked out of the room (on principle only – it’s not a room where Jamie chooses to spend any significant amount of time). Because chimps are very strong and very destructive, any maintenance done to their enclosures has to be chimp-proof. Jamie, especially, can always be relied upon to point out any flaws in workmanship.
