There was some slight reprieve from the heat today. The sky is blanketed with clouds and rain has been on and off since morning. Personally, I have mixed feelings about this reprieve because though it is cooler, it’s still a “brisk” 97º out, making the day more humid. The chimpanzees didn’t seem to mind though.
During lunch, Rayne chose to perch herself on a pool of diluted Gatorade in the Riverview Greenhouse. She ate her entire lunch there, taking sips in-between bites. I was able to get some photos of here enjoying her chow biscuits. This series of photos is also a good depiction of how a wadge is made.
Some bonus photos from today:
Negra watching her group embark on their first patrol of the day.
Honey B watching me as I was taking photos of the Gatorade pool.
Jody taking it easy in her Greenhouse.
Burrito coming over to tell me to stop taking photos of Jody and to play chase.
Lucky patiently waiting for dinner service.
