Psychology and Biology Trip to Twycross Zoo


Some of the Sixth Form Psychology and Biology students visited Twycross Zoo recently. The Zoo is renowned for its primate colonies and these were the main focus of interest, especially the chimpanzees, Orang-utans and the bonobos. The girls carried out observations of the animals’ behaviour and identified features similar to human behaviour, as well as many differences. The young animals in particular seemed to show playful behaviour amongst themselves, and also frequently irritated their elders! The social organisation, including how the young were cared for, differed greatly from one species to another.
