In Waikiki we went to theirs. It was ok wandered in the morning, the rest of my wife's family left after lunch. So we see the rest of the zoo ending with the Chimpanzies. We're going to leave and I notice they're gathering under a ledge. I tell my wife we have to stay because I figure there's a reason. Sure enough a woman shows up on top of the ledge with food.
By far that was the coolest feeding times I've ever seen. They were in small groups and doing all sorts of things to get noticed, very entertaining.
I love zoos.
I was at a zoo in florida (don't remember which) and there was a huge enclosure with orangutans in and there was a tank top in there that they were passing around. One of them would take it off and throw it and another of them would chase after it, pick it up and put it on. It was really fun to watch. Then I noticed that someone had thrown them some chewing gum and one of them was lying on his back and pulling the gum out of his mouth in a long string, watching it all the way and letting it drop on his stomach. He would then pull it back into his mouth little by little with his lips until it was all back in and repeat. My brother and I were loving every minute of it.
