“The Great Ape House is open, but Batang and Redd still choose to spend the majority of their time resting behind-the-scenes. We were lucky to catch this glimpse of them yesterday! To help Batang transition back into her normal routine, keepers have scattered some of Batang’s favorite foods around the public exhibit for enrichment, as well as piles of hay and fleece blankets for nesting materials. Today, she built a nest close to the door of Bonnie and Kyle’s enclosure, and the two took turns looking at Redd!”
