Entertainment for the chimpanzees

By Sue Smith

When my daughter was about four years old we were at the zoo when Johnny Morris was filming. He was at Chimp Island and was trying to attract their attention by imitating their actions.

The tables had been truly turned and they became the audience and he became the entertainer!
