On rare occasions the chimpanzees are served food that could really be considered a very special treat. This year in celebration of the fourth of July the chimpanzees enjoyed an exceptional meal of hotdogs, corn, watermelon and some homemade apple pie (made courtesy of our visiting summer apprentice, Larkin)!
The meal appeared to be well received and each chimpanzee seemed partial to a particular element. Here is Dar, enjoying the hot dog buns:
Here is Tatu, enjoying the actual hot dogs:
And, here is Loulis, enjoying the watermelon: You know a meal is a success when your guests ask for seconds. Here, Loulis is asking for more watermelon from the table just out of camera range by signing THAT.
