It was a chilly Spring morning, so I offered the chimpanzees some hot chai tea while they were outside. Turns out it was a little bit too hot, and they were having to take really tiny sips to avoid getting too much hot tea in their mouths. I decided to try a different approach so I slid a couple of small saucers underneath the fencing and asked the chimpanzees to hold them up so I could pour them some tea. It worked out very well, and they got to enjoy the tea in their own tea cups.
