Default Re: Bean, adopted August 12--Sort of a Journal

One more photo, maybe, of his habitat now that it has more hiding places.
habitat2mb.jpg.

I already resized it once... at least it fits across the page crossways. This was the 2 mp option. Or was that mb? I really, really don't know what I'm doing, but I'm learning by stumbling along.

Guess what he uses the blue "sandbath" for? Oh well, it's easy to clean.

If you missed it, please look at the picture at the end of the previous page.

I've been seeing Bean more and more, in the middle of the day--today he came out around noon when I was cleaning the habitat-- and earlier in the evening. He usually shows little fear, but I don't push my luck by interefering with him much (later, maybe.) He's so tiny it amazes me that he isn't terrified.

Yesterday I started touching him, rather than just letting him touch me. He runs off. I'm only going to do it 2 or 3 times per day, and see if we can work up to his not being afraid of that too.

Default Habitat Cleanup and Question

I've now had Bean here for one month.

In an unrelated incident, yesterday I cleaned out the middle third of his tank. Since it's 3 feet long, I'm cleaning out one foot of it at a time. I already did the shallow end once, but this time I did the section he was actually in at the time, in the tree-stump-looking hide. As I was removing the bedding around it, he dashed out and hid in his hollow log for a while. Then he dived into the deepest bedding.

He stayed there all day, not even coming out for his seeds in the middle of the day. But by night, he was out again and walked right into my hand for the special treat, which was half of a half of a peanut. I also gave him a small sunflower seed. We're back to being buddies.

I find myself reluctant to move to the bathtub, because our interactions the way they are are charming and low-stress. Does he need to get out of the tank? He's such a tiny animal, and the tank looks big when he's out, like maybe he could be satisfied with it. I'm satisfied.
