Monkeys have been enjoying Easter treats at their safari park home.

The barbary macaques explored giant eggs filled with tasty morsels which have been placed around their enclosure at Blair Drummond Safari Park near Stirling.

The treats were prepared by keepers as part of enrichment activities for the animals.

Some of the monkeys climbed on top of the eggs, which dangled from ropes in their enclosure, while others reached up to grab them.

The park is gearing up for a weekend of Easter activities, including an Easter bunny scavenger hunt for prizes.

A spokeswoman for the park said: “Staff at the popular Scottish safari park are preparing for a cracking weekend, with lots of special spring-time activities and perfect weather conditions forecast.”
