Over the last couple of weeks the zoo has received several generous donations of Christmas trees. We use these trees for enrichment as they have a pungent smell which is something new for the chimps to experience. Some of the chimps, especially Lottie, even enjoy stripping the bark off the trunks.
We have had a few sunny days over the last week and the chimps sit in certain areas of their enclosures, which act as suntraps. However, with the changing weather we might see them out playing in the snow over the next few weeks!
