Enjoy a video of a type of voluntary enrichment some of the chimpanzees like!
Today is the big day! Our signature fundraiser, HOOT!, is this evening and we are so excited to be celebrating the chimps and all things sanctuary with you! If you are not able to attend in-person, keep an eye out for the live stream of the auction portion of the event that will be happening on Facebook around 7:00pm PST.

Sophia, that’s about the most fun I’ve ever had with nail polish, watching you and the chimps interacting with the polish! In fact, this video made my day!! Thanks to both the filmer and the polisher for this treat. Maybe they wanted to dress up a bit for HOOT!
that is amazing, they sit so quietly for their nail polish, love it :blush::blush:

I, too, was impressed with how long Beezus sat there quietly!
Everyone will look great for the big day!
I hope you all have a good time! wish I could be there!
i love it! They really seemed to enjoy it! Do they have favorite colors?
I was hoping for bright pink. or mauve! But maybe the non-toxic ones have fewer colors. Still,what fun! i wondered if they stood around looking at each others’ nails…
any idea how many will be in attendance tonight at HOOT…?
I love it! B was so well behaved! Cy boy made me laugh when he stuck out his tongue!!! First thing he did was then to stick his newly painted nails rihht in his mouth!!!
That was great! They gang will look great for HOOT! tonight, will they be watching the livestream?! Loved the way Lucky snuck her hand out for a little glitzy polish. I think the manufacturers need to make non-toxic flavored polish. Seemed everyone wanted to taste their nials when done.

How adorable. Loved this video. Thanks for sharing todays enrichment project with all of us
I’m curious to know if Honey B had seen one of you put on nail polish, or just notice how your nails were painted, or did she consider it “grooming her nails” ? What a sweetheart, and I love how curious the others were, but Gordo was not impressed!
Hi Sofia…Of course I love every daily blog, but have to admit this one will go into my evergrowing special favorites…One I’m unlikely to forget…Thanks for making my day by literally making me, ”laugh out loud”….I’m still smiling from ear-to-ear….
