Chimpanzees go bananas for porridge

Have your say

Chimpanzees at Edinburgh Zoo were given big portions of warm porridge yesterday, to mark World Porridge Day.

This annual global event gives porridge enthusiasts the chance to celebrate one of Scotland’s favourite national dishes, whilst raising awareness of the life-saving work of Scottish-based charity Mary’s Meals.

Keepers served the porridge in plastic bottles so the chimps could drink it or use sticks as tools to access the “oat cuisine”.
