Happy Birthday, Mandy!

It’s treats all round today in the chimp enclosure as Mandy celebrates her 38th birthday.


Mandy, along with our six other females, Fanny, Barbie, Malaika, Binti, Mali and Banika, will be enjoying fruity treats from the keeping staff down in Lower Primates.

Trainee Keeper, Shaun Crompton, pictured with Mandy (right) and Fanny said: “Mandy was hand reared and the most open to human interaction within our group, so she is always interested in what we get up to.   “We’ll certainly be making a fuss of her on her big day.”
