Default Sisterhood of the Chimpanzee Pants

I spent an hour enthralled by these chimps so I apologize if this is too many pics but I just find them adorable! The baby is Siri she is 2 years old, she is missing an arm but gets around very well (tear jerking story about Siri http://amydeestephens.wordpress.com/2012/01/16/705/). The bigger baby is Zoe she is 4 years old (tear jerking story about Zoe http://www.okczoo.com/conservation/c...46/raising-zoe). The adult is Cindy (i'm 90% sure, they kinda all look the same lol) she's a frequent playmate but not their mother, Zoe and Siri are orphans.
Zoe found some pants and proceeded to wear them like a cape and prance around showing them off. When Cindy and Siri would act like they didn't care anymore Zoe would tease them with the pants by swinging by on the rope and swinging the pants withing a couple of inches of them. Cindy and Siri really wanted the pants. They all ended up in a big wrestle match which was just about the cutest thing i've ever seen. Siri has a little bit of trouble getting around as easily as the others but i don't think she realizes she's disabled cause she just keeps on trucking when she falls or gets knocked off the rope. (exposure was tough and I was too entertained to adjust, so I had to adjust heavily afterwards for these to turn out at all)

3 Zoe's discovery!
4 Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's pants!
5 Why aren't you coveting my pants?!

Not against the rules - it is the only way to post more than 5 as attachments, which is the limit for one post - people do it all the time.

Besides we wouldn't want to be deprived of these amusing shots. You must have had a great time. Thanks for posting them all.
