Everyone enjoys an ice lolly to cool off on a hot day, and chimpanzees are no exception.

Animals at Blair Drummond Safari Park enjoyed some fruit-flavoured treats as temperatures crept towards 25C (77F) at the attraction near Stirling.

Resident chimpanzees Chippy and Copper sucked on ice pops while the ring-tailed lemurs tucked into frozen fruit "kebabs" with strawberries, melon and grapes.

The Madagascar natives are sun-worshippers and enjoy nothing more than relaxing in the sunshine with friends, according to keepers.

Amur tigers Bella and Genghis, meanwhile, made the most of the mini heatwave by dipping into their outdoor pool.
