The Halloween party was much anticipated and eagerly awaited by all, human and non-human primates alike, this year. Thanks to the generous contributions by Sherri Armet, Martha Garvey & Marlena Davis the chimpanzees were well supplied with treats and decorations for the day!
Treat bags were hidden all throughout the East Playroom and included everything from healthy snacks like apples and homemade pumpkin muffins (baked by volunteer Erin J.) to the more traditional sweets.
The chimpanzees spent a delighted morning trick or treating in the enclosures and, just like humans, demonstrated a distinct preference for sweets before healthy treats. However, they ultimately savored everything offered.

Hope Halloween was a happy and safe one for all our friends!
