Christmas comes early for chimpanzees

Festive treats at ZSL Whipsnade Zoo

  Zookeepers are busy packing presents full of their favourite nuts and stuffing snack-filled stockings.click here to see all the photos http://celebrityphotosuk.photoshelter.com/gallery/Christmas-for-the-chimpanzees/G0000gRfOEy5gwxw/ The troop of six, which includes brothers Phil and Grant, will also be waking up to festive fruit wreaths to hang up on their climbing frame.   It’s all part of the chimpanzees enrichment activities – keeping them active as they investigate something new.   Keeper Jane Storr said: “The chimpanzees have definitely made it onto Santa’s nice list this year, so we wanted to do something special for them. The group are very inquisitive, so giving them gifts like stuffed stockings and presents are a fantastic way of keeping them stimulated and encouraging their natural foraging behaviours.”   Visitors to ZSL Whipsnade Zoo this Christmas can prepare their own gifts for the chimps in interactive Elves’ Workshops, visit Santa is his fairytale grotto, and learn all about the Zoo’s herd of reindeers
