KODACHROMESAND HS EKTACHROME(CENTER,RIGHT) BY JANE GOODALL Rainy weather routine: To escape the cold, damp ground, two mature males (above) rest among branches in freshly built day nests, but they make no effort to take shelter from the rain. In the dry season, usually from May through September, the animals prefer to nap in the shade of trees. Throughout the year the primates live like nomads, ranging a territory that extends beyond the reserve boundaries. If food is in short supply, they may travel as much as 10 miles a day. At twilight the tired wanderers begin to seek lodging for the night. Climbing into the trees, they construct new sleeping platforms, sometimes 80 feet above ground. To build a nest, each ape bends branches and twigs into a leafy cover ing over a fork in the tree. Suffering with a cold, William (top, right) turns in early. Apes often snack at bedtime. Nesting chimpanzee seeks solace by chew ing on a towel he stole from the author. Curled like a dog, an ape dozes. He will vary sleeping positions, but prefers the side. 283 N.G.S.
