This morning, many of our youngsters gathered on the fake termite mount to “hunt” for some honey. Young Mata decided he would wait until all the others have gone – but, was there still some honey left???
🌴Our ‘big’ boys are hunting for yummy peanut treats hidden in the high grass
Our keepers are used to hide pieces of fruits (vegetables or other festivities) into our day areas !
It looks like Vida found some of these little hidden surprises, and doesn’t hesitate to taste it all in the high grass for more tranquility 😄
Leaves of banana trees are yummy treats but also great enrichment items!!
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…
EKOLO is acting like an acrobat while playing with an old sock. His energy and balance impress me!
Dominant Tika doesn’t mind Pasa’s collecting some of the treats of his enriched bottles
Stealing the keepers’ bucket has always been fun and provided our young residents with great enrichment! Sitting high up in the trees, they had a better vieuw of what was going on at the sanctury!
