Yes, we have now ‘bread ‘ hunters at J.A.C.K. as every morning, to get the infants out of their night quarters, we hide pieces of bread in the open air enclosure and they just run for the food!
Pundu is the best hunter and the fastest too!
Before the gates are opened, the person in charge of the infant group has to hide bread. It was Mama Maguy’s turn yesterday.
This is part of enrichment and it trains the chimps to hunt for their food.
Remember, the orphans at J.A.C.K. will one day return to the wild and must learn food comes from the forest and not from humans…
