As you age, it gets harder and harder to reconnect with your childhood. Sometimes we all need a little hint to remember what it was like to be small and fun-loving. Today that hint comes from Burrito, the cutest little chimp at Chimp Sanctuary Northwest!

Burrito the chimp is reliving your childhood at Chimp Sanctuary Northwest with his very own Slinky. You’ll definitely remember these if your age is anywhere in the double digits. Even if you don’t, this may make you go out and buy one!

Caregivers at Chimp Sanctuary Northwest really go the extra mile to encourage the chimps to play. They imitate chimp laughter (most of those little gasping sounds aren’t coming from Burrito) to stimulate a safe, fun environment for them.

The best part about this video is the fact that all of the chimpanzees that live at this sanctuary were rescued from terrible lives. Burrito was saved from life in a laboratory, but as you can see, those sad days are far behind him now!

I was sonetimes kept in a cage as a toddler - it's called "safety". A pity all these toddlers who're getting run over by their "parents" hadn't had them utilized!

I didn't ever have one. Funnily, I've been thinking of getting one in recent months (along with one of those "hitting balls" things :D). I hope he's still got it - the darling...... xxxxxx

Please check out Chimpanzee Sanctuary Northwest before you make your decisions on this picture and video. They are not in cages and are free to go outside with a hill and natural setting or stay inside. They have toys, can build nests, have enrichment items and are loved by their caretakers. The reason you see bars, etc is to protect them and their caretakers.

Kathleen Polletta, it's amazing how everyone sees the negative without even checking the facts first. Thank you for the info. I know for the most part people mean well but it's frustrating when people don't bother to find out what's really going on.

Connie Donne Yes I think you are correct. I love Chimpanzee Sanctuary Northwest. I follow them on Facebook and their blog. It think that is Burrito in the picture. He's 33 years old and the only male. They all have just different personalities. And it's fun to watch them play with the caretakers (with precautions for the caretakers)

Also people have to realize that no matter how cute they are chimps are extremely dangerous and powerful. The caretakers need to take precautions.

Connie Donne One is no sticking their fingers thru the bars. In videos of them playing you can see how they do it with the finger bent in. The site really stresses how the caretakers need to take precautions no matter how nice the chimps are at the moment.

Buil him a set of stairs for the slinky to run down.....preferably outside the cage....I hope they have an outdoors area!

He has stairs and more. Check out Chimpanzee Sanctuary Northwest to see all that they have. It's a great sanctuary. They have outdoors, indoors and are free to go in and out. They have "play ground", hill. The picture doesn't really give a true vision. They aren't in cages but they are secure to protect them and their caretakers.
