Wow, I could watch Jamie all day.
The look of intensity on her face is amazing, you can tell she loves to figure
things out, I would hate to think of her bored.
Thank you all so much for using your brains to keep her brain engaged.

I could watch her all day. Especially the barrel riding at the end!!! She’s amazing.

Of course she is, and she knows it! That’s where she gets her swagger from, and her swagger is what makes her the Boss!
I love the barrel riding at the end, too. “Work smarter, not harder.”

The look at the end of the barrel ride seems to be saying, “Okay. I’m ready, bring on the next challenge!”

She’s really smart. She’s really determined. She’s really, really patient and she’s wickedly adroit! Oh, I should add she is really beautiful.
And this video made me think back to the infamous day, in 1960, when Jane Goodall first discovered David Greybeard using a tool and Louis Leakey stated “We must now redefine man, redefine tool, or accept chimpanzees as human.” We did not do any of those things. Jamie proves yet again that we must (finally) redefine man and accept chimpanzees as sentient, intelligent beings by granting them personhood. May 2019 be the year of change!

I’ve been visiting this site daily for many years and todays video compiled by JB is my absolute favorite video of all. I’ve watched it twice just now and I am amazed every second of it. What an intelligent chimp Jamie is, pulling in the peanut on the outside of the cage, bringing over the blue toy to use as a step stool, sitting there with a spoon in hand and scooping out the contents of the cup and sitting atop that barrel and zoom around the room to get to the front just cracked me up. I do love Jamie so very much.
