Here’s another chimp ID from The Lucky Six. Gordo! We are still learning so much about this group every day, but one thing we learned right away about Gordo is that he is a foodie! He’s always ready for meal times. I think he could eat his serving plus everyone else’s and still want more! That’s okay though, I can relate. Gordo seems to enjoy the food puzzles we give them for enrichment. I usually see him interacting with them, especially the raisin boards.
Gordo plays chase with us every so often, but for the most part he seems to prefer to lay back and watch the happenings of the day.
He is the smallest male in his group. Gordo has a slim body type, but still is pretty large compared to Burrito!
Gordo loves boxes! We reuse the boxes our produce comes in by giving them to the chimps and he can usually be found sitting in one.
Gordo has a very white beard with a lot of tan coloring around his bottom lip and a little bit above his upper lip. He has a pretty narrow face.
Today Gordo took his lunch carrots and enjoyed them in the Chute. We gave them access to this space a couple weeks ago and Gordo along with the rest of his group have been spending a lot of time out there.
