That’s vonderful, and I’m sure they vill enjoy it. A mirror? I think I have a little hand mirror… Do they like to see they’re reflections?

Yes! Especially the younger ones. I’ll show you how you can do it without startling them.

Sounds fun! I’ll bring it by sometime, hopefully soon. I’ve never been around any primates for very long, you know, except of course from the guests view outside the enclosures. My specialty’s more the canines.

Oh, not yet! I’m going to start working with the young ones soon. I often do try and stimulate their minds as much as possible. If you ever do come by, bring a mirror. They’d like that.

Really? Vell I’ll have to visit, then. Ve can alvays talk to the animals, they’re great partners, but sometimes you need a person to talk vith, too.

Definitely. Or well. I’m pretty happy being with my chimps since they’re.. Well, they are almost humans. They are our cousins and they are extraordinary like us in many ways. I guess it’s easier for me to interact with them than me interacting with just regular people.
