There is a huge progress regarding Bapu’s healing process! The wound of her tibia is now totally clean and closed;  we intend to move her soon to a bigger facility.

However, before doing so, we must be sure Bapu’s bone is strong and has healed up properly. Therefore, our young friend will have to be sedated for a X-Ray.

Of course, we will keep you updated!!!

 

I could watch them play for hours!!!

Mata had great fun in the pool with Rosie and this is why his haircut looked so wet and nice!

 

What do you think MATA did to have such awesome haircut??

Our sanctuary always tries to reuse every day items to modify them in enrichment tools. This is how the idea came up to fill up old socks with some dry food (cereals, pop corn, dry fruits, peanuts, etc) the chimps love!

Tody, we filmed JAC and you will see that he doesn’t care about opening the knot on  top of the sock : he rather bites the sock open to get the treats…

Our hairy friends are extremely delighted as tomato season has just started and they love this special treat!!!

TOMMY – It’s getting very hot here. Tommy has just had a cool swim in the pond and is now enjoying a mud bath while chewing  some banana stems

Most of our residents have a dark (black, brown) “white” of the eye and only young female KINA shows us a very unusual gaze

SHASA is the dominant female of our main group and she enjoys every single moment of being the dominant! Here, she’s being groomed by her friend KINA

The month of October is  the hottest month of the year as it makes the transition between Winter and Summer! Temperatures can be very high; especially in the afternoons!

For our residents, these temperatures are worst because of their thick fur! The night rooms remain open so the chimps can go outside or stay/play inside the facilities where temperatures are cooler. Also, on different places of the open air playgrounds, there are small concrete towers providing fresh and cool water all day round!
