She's now on 40 dumplings a day...

From somewhere on the internet:

"China’s Xinhua news agency reported in October that Ai Ai, the veteran chimp at the safari park in Shaanxi province, who is 27 years old and who started smoking cigarette butts at age 11 when her first mate died, has finally kicked her nicotine habit. Zoo officials attributed her success to distractions such as exercise, music (via a Walkman “borrowed” from a keeper), and better food, such as fried dishes and dumplings."
