This video was thrilling to see. How often do you get them together like this? Have they been out on Young’s Hill together? Are you optimistic about the integration? We hope Willy B and Burrito will continue to bond. The only males with all of those females need to stick together! Hope springs eternal! Karen and Don

They have been together almost the whole time since their re-introduction last week. They haven’t yet explored the hill but that might be an option soon 🙂

I’m absolutely mesmerized. Two different worlds, two different experiences, yet they are finding caring and trust between themselves. Fascinating and wonderful.

Epic! Left me laughing just like the boys.

I’m so impressed by how the new chimps are being very friendly and accommodating. I wonder if they’ve always been like this, or if they’re clever enough to know that they’re the ones who are “invading” the seven’s territory. I suspect the latter.

I’ve felt the same way! The 3 are the newcomers, yet they’re the ones “accommodating” the others! As if the 7 had waltzed in on them!

This is so Great !
Besides general goofiness, I see trust and bonding going on, this might be a real love match 🙂

Thanks for posting this! Wow! Just listen to all of that laughter!
I don’t know that I recall seeing Burrito getting rough-and-tumble with anyone, the way Foxie and Jamie or Annie and Missy do. Is this a first?
If so, bless Willy B for being such a good and decent leader! This is what we’d hoped for, we just need to make sure the other 8 are all on board!

He does play with some of the other girls, especially Foxie 🙂

But does it reach the level of “roughhousing”?

A week or so back I never thought this would ever happen. They really look like they are enjoying each others company and have become best friends. So great to see. Thanks for sharing.

As with yesterday’s video of Missy and Annie, there’s nothing like the sound of the laughter of great apes! I found myself laughing with them.

Love this! So happy for Mr. Man!

It made my day to see these two special fellows having such a great time bonding. It was really nice to see Willy smile.?

They look like they’re just two guys having a ball! I can’t imagine how it feels to be able to play with another male, but I think they’re off to a great start!

Willy B. looks like he is always having the best moment of his life. It’s like his face says he won the Chimpanzee version of Mega Millions. Like he can’t believe this is really happening right now.
