PHOTO – Chimpanzees at Edinburgh Zoo

We are frequent visitors to Edinburgh Zoo and are particularly fond of its chimpanzee enclosure, the Budongo Trail.

Yesterday when we visited, all the chimps were inside, sheltering from the cold weather and using the time to catch up on their grooming and beauty sleep!

Here are a selection of photos we took; hoping to capture the unique personalities and fascinating human-like expressions of our closest primate cousins.
