Happy Belated Birthday!

After shooting several of the chimpanzee's lounging around at Chimp Haven I saw Emma. She was very friendly and showed off her skills on command. "Teeth" was said and she pointed and opened her mouth to show them off. "Eyes" and she pointed to her eyes, "ears" and she pointed at her ears, then suddenly ran away when other more rambunctious chimps began to chase each other around the playground.

I also got to see Tracy, 2, with her mother, Teresa while they were fed oranges and bananas. Tracy is the young chimpanzee who drew national attention after her surprise birth. She turned 2 year-old in January.

The park will be open to the public Saturday March 21, 2009 for the first Chimpanzee Discovery Day of 2009.
