Chimpanzee Ball Pit Adventure!
I made a ball pit for the chimps I work with

Chimpanzees love ball pits too! Watch these young former research chimpanzees have the time of their lives playing in a ball pit created by the caregivers at the Project Chimps sanctuary. After years in the lab, it's their time to live! Thanks to Project Chimps caregiver Crystal for creating and capturing this footage. Also, some folks have asked if Jill was in the same room with the chimps when she demonstrated how to get into the tub. The answer is no, the chimps observed her from a safe distance in an adjacent enclosure. #projectchimps
