As staff training still continues, we didn’t want to leave the chimpanzees without much to do while we continue to progress our PRT program. So today we decided to throw them something fun. Today was “Let’s Go To The Movies Day.” We put out some ticket rolls and bags of popcorn to munch on.
Negra was really into the little bags of popcorn. She grabbed several bags all to herself.
Though Jamie grabbed several bags herself initially, something else caught her eye.
The Ticket Rolls!
Ticket rolls have been becoming a favorite with both groups. Honey B, Mave, and Willy B were given some earlier last year and almost became and instant hit. The Group of Seven were also given some during Christmas. If you look closely, you could see some. After Christmas, we there were several nests found with tickets, and some that seemed they were made entirely out of tickets. When the ticket rolls were spotted, Jamie immediately went to work to unroll them.
Honey B loved her bags of popcorn and grabbed as many as she could.
Willy B also wanted some.
Mave decided not to participate in today’s activities. But here are some photos of her eating lunch on her makeshift table from Sunday.
