It’s a beautiful day here at Chimpanzee Sanctuary Northwest. The sun is out, there is a light breeze, and the chimpanzees are spending their time with each other both inside and outside.
When they were given access to Young’s Hill, Missy raced outside with Annie close on her metaphorical tail.
Jody was actually the first one out on Young’s Hill today, and also the first one back. What she really wanted was to spy on her neighbors. Once she realized her neighbors were not in the Chute at that moment, she headed back inside.
With Missy coming in right behind her.
Burrito, on the other hand, knows that he can just wait by the window for his neighbors to make an appearance without having to go outside to check.
And when their neighbors do make an appearance, be prepared for a lot of hooting and hollering.
Jody and Foxie caught a glimpse of Willy B as he made his way into the Chute and immediately began hooting.
Though Willy B, Mave, and Honey B spent a considerable amount of time in the Chute today, they also spent a lot of time keeping busy indoors, as well.
Mave decided she wanted to make a sock puppet.
She was actually pretty happy and satisfied with her sock puppet.
Willy B spent a lot of time napping and requesting his caregivers to play chase with him. When we wasn’t doing that, he made sure his neighbors knew of his presence by displaying in the Mezzanine.
It usually starts out with him dragging his yellow bucket around to make as much noise as possible as a buildup, before it crescendos into a scream and him boxing himself in the mirror.
When the mirror wasn’t used for Willy B’s shadowing boxing practice, Honey B used it to look at herself and her caregivers through the reflection.
