It’s been a very merry Christmas here at CSNW. The chimpanzees started the day with a special Christmas breakfast of peanut butter rice balls, bananas, and smoothie. After the playroom was cleaned, the real party began – complete with whole pomegranates and tangerines, new toys and blankets from friends Robbi and Dick Brown, Leslie Sodaro, and Joanne Pierce, and a Christmas tree decorated with popcorn and peanut strings and troll dolls.
Aside from the pomegranates, the tree might have been the star of the day. Diana had the idea to suspend it a couple of feet off the ground, so it spun festively whenever someone touched it. Burrito, in particular, seemed quite taken with it, as you’ll see below.
