It was a busy day today. The construction crew worked hard to begin installing the new doors in the new playrooms. Since they spent most of their time in the Mezzanine, that means Willy B, Honey B, and Mave had to stay in the Front Rooms and Chute while the crew was up there. The Three didn’t seem to mind. Willy B and Honey B spent most of their time in the Chute, while Mave liked her quiet time in the Front Rooms.
On the other side, the Seven spent most of their day on Young’s Hill.
A morning patrol was Jamie’s top priority.
While Missy found a block of ice in one of the structures.
She grabbed her ice treat and went to one of the highest structures to enjoy it in solitude.
Foxie also had her own little adventure with Angel Cake.
Burrito also joined in this morning’s walk.
What’s that around his neck you may ask? It’s a drop down puzzle, one of the chimpanzees’ evening food puzzles. Food puzzles generally come in different shapes and forms. There are those which can be passed out, those which can be scattered, and those which are hung from various places in the enclosures. For the most part, all the ones which can be hung inside the enclosures are deemed safe for them by the staff. They are hung up for various reasons, such as having one in one place to try to deter someone from grabbing them all and hoarding them, to provide just a splash of extra challenge, or to just help prevent them from breaking easily. Though Burrito is fine with having something like this, it wasn’t what we had in mind when we hang up drop down puzzles.
However, seeing how it made his entire day…
I will allow it this time.
Speaking of Burrito enjoying things, you may remember he has found a certain fondness to the rocker mirror. While we were cleaning the playroom the other day, I looked over and saw this.
He never ceases to amaze me.
We hope you have a terrific night and enjoy the video of Burrito playing with everybody!
Burrito seems to put everyone in a good mood.
No-one can resist him !
I love that photo of Burrito in the mirror, It deserves to be in a beautiful frame 🙂
Thank you Chad for the awesome blog today!
Just leaving today’s technology as always able to watch it on the TV, and it was a cool video today.
Favorite – most definitely the photo where shows burritos reflection in The rocker mirror.
Thank you again and everyone have a wonderful day tomorrow
That video is a scream! When Burrito stomps at Annie to join him and she puts out her wiggly, teasing fingers, it’s so sweet. I have to say I can’t recall if I’ve ever seen Negra laugh so hard. Yup, Burrito has a gift.
Mave appears to be totally grooving to her quiet time in the Front Rooms. Funny how she is often looking at you upside down. And I see there’s a new friend amongst you — Angel Cake (?!). So we have Foxie having an adventure with Angle Cake while Burrito has an adventure with, wait….. what?! A plastic tube?! Around his neck?! And then he becomes a rocker while he holds his rocker mirror close up and steady so he can drink in his handsomeness. Could Burrito be any funnier if he tried?!
Bubba’s laughter is contagious! A friend of mine has taken to calling her 2-year-old grandchild “Burrito” in homage to Mr. B’s seemingly inexhaustible energy. Time will tell if the human will develop a laugh like his simian (nick)-namesake.
The handsome Mr. B is such a joy. Love the the picture of him with the mirror. Thanks for the great post.

My favorite games are slappy d’ slap and slow-mo chase. Burrito is such a sweetheart. I love him more than my luggage!

Wasn’t it like in the cartoons, when someone is flailing, trying to hit someone, and the object is holding them off with one hand!?
