Hard work!

Let’s have the keeper do our work! In bush walks, chimpanzees bring hard fruits to the keepers (and the volunteers) to crack for them. It’s hard work and chimpanzees are quick to learn who’s good at it and who isn’t. Hence Antoine has 5 fruits by his feet while they all wait their turn. In the wild these fruits are eaten by adults who just open them with their teeth. Some CCC chimps know how to crack these fruits themselves (Douma for example) but it takes them a looonnng time!
