This afternoon, as Willy B enjoyed himself in the courtyard, the other 7 chimps decided to cause some commotion. Foxie lead the charge, working her friends up into a flurry of pant-hoots and raucous displays. I always think of it as them yelling a mix of “GET OFF MY LAWN,” and “Oh my -that guy is DREAMY!” at their neighbors. Chimps have complicated emotions and equally complicated relationships.
Through all that noise, I found Negra, alone in her Zen bubble. She had better things to do than get herself worked up over some silly guy.
