Default Re: Meet Sharky, my new Robo

Update on Sharky,

He is doing well, a little bit less skittish then before. But still not a fan of cuddles.
He loves to run in his wheel and keep busy with digging...
At the moment he is on mini hemp and it is working out great.
I love the smell it has and it keeps everything nice and clean.

Here are some pics...

Sharky looks real cute and with a good personality too I wouldn't expect a lot on regards to taming him like you did Jiggy. Robos don't much like to be handled. I have two and neither one will let me pick them up, or lift them up since they won't stay on my hand long. But they do enjoy attention and you can bond with them even if you can't hold them.

What size cage do you have? Is it a 40 gal tank? It looks great!

Thank you
Yes I've accepted the fact that he is't much for cuddles, I have kept that in my mind when I purchased a Robo. But they are so much fun that I took that with the deal of course. He is hard to get on your hand, but he is a bit calmer and accepts it more then before. He is very curious and loves to check everything out. I love him very much, I just gave up on keeping everything tidy he loves to do landscaping lol. His cage is 60x30x30 cm I don't know exactly how much that is in gallons. I bond with every animal I have all in different ways, I love their individuality and personalities.

If Sparky is curious that's an indicator that he'll be a very nice pet, even coming to your hand this early is a good sign too! Yay!

well I have had him for almost 3 months now and he is very curious but lightning fast and a bit skittish, he isn't really a cuddler but that isn't a problem for me, I just love his character so much, he cracks me up.
