Well my family recently took in an abandoned chimpanzee. We named him oliver. He has happily been living with us for the past 5 months. We use him in our education program which travels to different schools and events to teach people more about animals and to give kids the opportunity to get up and close with animals. Have any of you guys had any experiences with captive chimps? He has bonded with my dogs and thinks that he is one of them. Have any of you guys ever had similar situations where animals of different species become best of friends? I am currently searching to get him a buddy (another chimp) so that he can share his 1 acre enclosure with another of his kind.
Thanks for listening
P.S. Here is a picture of what he looks like
