Bahati the chimpanzee apes gym routine

Bahati the chimp seems more gympanzee than chimpanzee and certainly knows about those all-important stretches.

Bahati is pictured doing what seem to be preparations for a heavy session in a fitness centre.

The ape’s five-minute routine, seen by bemused onlookers, began with reaching across her body to stretch her arms.

She then moved on to pulling her legs straight up into the air to loosen her muscles. And, after stretching each leg, she gave out a huge yawn before getting on with her day.

‘The chimp didn’t pay any attention to us – she was only concerned about changing funny stretches,’ said Russian Alexey Tishchenko, who took the photographs.
