Why does this piece of multi-dimensional array code not work in php?

<?php

	$apes = array(
			'baboon' => array('tree' => "cedar", 'food' => "mango", 'drink' => "whiskey"),
			'gorilla' => array('tree' => "palm", 'food' => "coconut", 'drink' => "water")
	);
	
	$apestr = array();
	foreach ($apes as $ape){
		$apestr[] = "$apes";
	}
	$resultB = implode(",",apestr);
	echo $resultB;
?>

I'd like to list the results separated by commas and remove the last trailing comma.


thanks in advance

Maybe something like this?  It's hard to understand exactly what you want to print out from the original data.
