Today, while observing the chimpanzees forage on Young’s Hill, volunteer Patti said she likes how Negra goes about things.
While Missy is running from one structure to another, finding all of the food that was placed or hidden high up on the structures or the treat rock:
And Jody is busy running around collecting as much as she can, mostly from the ground (low hanging fruit, you might say):
Negra wanders about until she finds some food:
And then she plops herself down and simply enjoys what is at hand (in this case, a beet that she seems to have splayed open and a prized pineapple top):
After finishing, she’ll sit for a bit and look around before moving on to the next station:
J.B. described this as a lack of a strategy, but I think it’s still a strategy to have a laid back, “see what happens” way of approaching the forage.
Either way, she looked very happy out there. ❤️
