Seven female chimps enjoyed traditional Shrove Tuesday fare today when keepers whipped up a few pancake treats.

Keeper Stacey Ball, pictured, said: “We normally give the chimps a well-balanced diet of fruit and vegetables, but they love the occasional sweet treat, just like humans.

“We made the pancakes in exactly the same way using eggs, flour and milk, but then had a challenge trying to flip them over the high fence to the girls who were all out in the paddock eagerly waiting.

“They were reaching up to try to catch the pancakes as they came flying over and we made sure each chimp had one. They loved them!
