Talking Meet Murmel :3

I picked up Murmel yesterday and she's already made herself at home quite a bit!
She's made her nest under a bendy bridge and stored away some food.
And the moment she learned how a wheel worked she couldn't stop running for hours! Due to her fur colour she can perfectly hide in her dark wooden cage and it is almost impossible to find her if she doesn't move..

Luckily I could sneak a shot of her as she was exploring her new home. As soon as she's settled in completely I'll post some more updates!

(The funniest thing ever was when she thought she had a food bowl in front of her, stuck her nose in it quickly and had to realize that it was a water bowl instead. The shock on her little face was priceless!)

Hey Merle,

Congrats on Murmel! She's rather adorable

Thinking of her getting a shock from her water bowl made me giggle

Where does the name Murmel come from/what's the story behind it?

Enjoy watching her settle in for the next few days

Murmel is german for Marble

We thought about naming her "Urmel" which is the name of a character in a german story by the "Augsburger Puppenkiste" and from there it's not far to Murmel we think it sounds cute
