The sanctuary team had built the chimps special villas, where they’d lived for the last several months — but the grand plan was to give them access to a huge, 6-acre outdoor habitat. After a lot of hard work, the outdoor habitat was finally ready this month.
When the villa door magically opened on Bo’s villa, which he shared with five other chimps, and exposed a vast field with grass and trees, Bo didn’t know what to do. He stood at the doorway, hesitating. Eventually, another chimpanzee named Lance pushed Bo aside and leapt out himself. Once outside, Lance spun around, looking both curious and bewildered.
