Sunset Zoo: Chimpanzee (One Thing, Three Ways)
Out of all of the exhibits at the Sunset Zoo, I had the most fun watching the chimpanzees this visit. Here are three shots of some of the adults. I took so many photos of the chimpanzee youth, Nkurukoto, that he warrants one (or more) of his own upcoming posts.

Chimpanzee Photo #1. Chimpanzee Mom, Hazina, carries young Nkurukoto. This must be the chimpanzee version of “Mama, hold me!”
Chimpanzee Photo #2. A chimpanzee enjoys the fall sunshine.
Chimpanzee Photo #3. When a zoo keeper brought a group of veterinary students by to observe the chimpanzees, he passed out chimp treats. This guy grabbed a big, ole’ handful and carried them around for a while without eating them.
Thank you for all the kind words!
P.S. I hope you also saw these photos of Nkurukoto. He was soooooo stinkin’ cute the day I shot these!
