Someone had wrapped up a bunch of boxes and in beautiful paper. The keepers threw them down into the area, from the feeding platforms. For a minute, we onlookers thought our gorillas were going to be feasting on Ritz Crackers and breakfast cereal. When the gorillas ripped off the paper, you could see the markings on some of the boxes and one of them said Ritz Crackers on it. It's the perfect weight of cardboard for this purpose. The gorillas ripped those boxes right apart and found their treats with no problem at all and gobbled them up. Inside were some loose carrots (N'kosi's favorite) and some popcorn.
