About the image:

A gift of a chimpanzee from husband Leslie to his wife Pauline in 1966  started a trend that ended with them owning a Zoo. After the arrival of the chimpanzee, they were given a bear and a raccoon. The family continued to expand their exotic animal collection with the likes of Bengal tigers, black panthers, antelopes, and eagles and so grew Southam Park Zoo, Warwickshire. Most of the time the animals could be found roaming around along with donkeys, pygmy goats, pigs, and meerkats. There was a penguin who befriended a leopard, a bulldog who mothered orphaned animals, and chimps who dressed in children’s clothes and lived in the family it was not considered unusual to see a chimpanzee feeding a leopard cub.
