    [title] => Koko Likes Pesto Pizza (and answer to Ndume quiz)
    [body] => As you can see, Koko is really enjoying her personal size Pesto pizza, topped with soy cheese, broccoli and other toppings.  She doesn"t eat "tomato" pizza because it seems to affect her joints (Penny has the same problem).


Now what about the other 2/3 of the answer to the KokoPix quiz we posed on Dec. 26? Well, Ndume likes tomato pizza rather than pesto, and that strange looking fruit he was eating in that photo is called Chayote, and is shown above in the lower inset. Chayote is a Mexican squash that is also referred to as a "vegetable pear" and it"s flesh is similar to that of a water chestnut (according to gourmetsleuth.com). The Gorilla Foundation"s food prep staff (headed by Jen Upson) likes to keep the gorilla"s diet both healthy and eclectic.

    [title] => Ndume"s Simple Tastes (correction to last week"s quiz)
    [body] => Here Ndume is enjoying some kale.


We thought this would be a good photo opportunity to correct our answer to the previous "What"s Ndume Eating?" quiz (see KokoPix Dec. 26 for the question, and KokoPix Jan. 05 for the incorrect answer). It turns out that Ndume was NOT eating the exotic squash "chayote," but was simply eating honeydew melon. We should have waited for our Gorilla Chef, Jen Upson, to return from vacation for the answer - rather than trying to deduce it from the log book.

Jen says they did offer chayote to the gorillas, but Ndume never ate it. She also says: " The gorillas both love all types of melon and they are very low calorie so we can give them gorilla sized pieces!"

Congratulations (and apologies) to those of you who emailed the right answer (and didn"t know it til now).
