Chimpanzees go ape for Valentine’s Day

Have your say

Love is in the air for Whipsnade Zoo’s chimpanzees as they tuck into tasty treats dished up in heart shaped hampers to get them in the mood on Valentine’s Day.

Keepers have been busy stuffing parcels full of the chimp’s favourite food, including apples and peanut butter.

The romantic meal with a difference is part of the zoo’s enrichment programme which stimulates the chimps’ curiosity and encourages their natural behaviours – and keepers say the six playful primates are bound to go ape over their Valentine’s treat.
