Lockdowns on Animals

Humans aren’t the only ones who become depressed during lockdowns. According to new research, primates in zoos became more solitary and sedentary during Covid quarantines.

Each primate showed different behaviors, just like humans. Olive baboons were less sexual and less dominant. Chimpanzees ate less and engaged less with their enclosures.

The animals seemed to resume normal behavior when their human visitors returned. Thank goodness they didn’t have to deal with Zoom meetings and virtual learning!
