Solo and Marion are two highly intelligent chimpanzees who kept surprising us with their inventiveness in finding ways to escape their enclosures. This included using a long branch to perform an improvised pole vault over the electric fence! See our earlier post on Solo discovering his special ‘escape proof’ enclosure here.
Marion, a younger chimp who also needed the extra security measures of the new enclosure was introduced to him not too long ago, so he has some company again! See below some pics of the two together. You can also see Marion showing off the various tools she uses for digging in a short video.
