Grooming is one of the most important activities in chimpanzee society. The caregivers at CSNW play an important role in the chimps’ social world, so we also groom with the chimps when they request it. Some of the chimps like to be groomed by their caregivers, but others, like Jamie, prefer to do the grooming.
Hands and Feet, Negra nesting
I envy chimps for their ability to clasp their feet together when they are resting.
Negra built a beautiful nest this morning from a brand new bale of straw. After settling in, she looked pretty content.
