Halloween is a super fun holiday at CHCI – all the chimpanzees really love masks, so we call it MASK DAY and throw a fun party with dozens of masks and other Halloween themed enrichment and food puzzles. In the forage was breakfast fruit (pears, oranges, apples, and melon); sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds; dried apricots, bananas, and apples; walnuts; almond milk; and some fruit leather. Yum! Here are some pictures from the day:
