Open wide!

Look at this . . . if I open my mouth really wide, I can almost fit this whole pine cone in all in one go!

The keepers in Monkey Tails have been busy making us squirrel monkeys yummy treats to eat, although they’re not making it very easy.

I discovered this cone was covered in delicious baby food, but it had seeped into all of the scales, so I thought I would simply be able to stick it in my mouth whole and get the food out that way, but it wouldn’t fit.

So then I had to sit there and pick out all the food with my fingers and nibble a little bit at a time, but I suppose it lasted longer that way!
