Field Trip to Chimp Haven

On Friday we went to Chimp Haven.  It is essentially a retirement home for chimpanzees.  Some were in the movies, some were used in labs, and some were simply rescued from mistreatment.  They are all living the good life now at Chimp Haven.

We got to ride on a trailer for a "behind the scenes" tour of the facilities.  We were able to see the chimpanzees up close.  They were fascinating.

Grandma, the oldest female chimp
She used to take care of baby chimps as part of her "job."  Now, she still carries around a baby doll.

Feeding time
They were eating apples and bananas.
