Chimpanzees are extremely inventive and any little thing can turn into a real enrichment tool due to their creativity!
To give you an idea, when observing young chimps Tommy and Ekolo, both where standing and playing at the pond.
It took me a short time to realise they were using something to drink water with…
… and I then noticed the two little primates were using the pit of the mango they had just eaten! They had broken the pit in two pieces and used these as spoons !
They were so concentrated that even their curious friend Nalia joined them at the pond to imitate their use of ‘tool’ exactly in the same way!
