You know it’s hard out here for a chimp — unless they live at the Tulsa Zoo. Then they get a birthday party.
Just like a human child’s birthday, there were carefully wrapped gifts torn to shreds in no time and guests climbing everything. Enloe, now 1 year old, is the 13th chimpanzee born at the Tulsa Zoo since the 1950s. Zookeeper Mo O’Leary said he’s hitting all the important milestones in development.
"We're seeing him eating food, going and foraging on his own now, but he will be continuing to nurse on mom, Jodi, until his fourth year of life," O'Leary said.
