Maximus is settling in well.
He had a couple of days where he was super skittish and I couldn't really touch or interact with him. Today we did a little exercise where I would put the green ball down for him to crawl into, and I pick him up to talk to him for a few seconds before letting him back down. We did this for a good few times and he got more confident. Hopefully he'll accept this as his taxi service!

His new wheel was initially a shock to him. It spins so much easier than his first one and it took him a little while to get the hang of it. Now he's a pro and I think he could easily charge my phone with the energy produced.

Today Maximus sat on my hand for a good minute, it was lovely.
He is still nippy, but only to try.

Truly, yes.
I could never have imagined the immense satisfaction you feel when they show signs of trust, it's really taking me by surprise when there's a small moment of something that proves a connection - some surge of love and bond. It's beautiful. I had no clue it would grow like it does, it's so worth any and all effort.

Maximus is loving his new home. He is such a joy to watch and interact with. He's well used to my hands by now, I can pet him loads when he's eating and he's curious, following my fingers around or coming over when I tap somewhere. I'm currently getting him used to using my palm as a bridge, working so so, but patience... haha.

I haven't seen him burrow much either, so I decided to add a tunnel and loosen up the bedding somewhat under the sandbath (on stilts) so he could explore underneath it. And he did! Soon as I had dug around he was down that tunnel. I listened to him messing around down there for a bit before re-emerging, actually digging his way back up just off the side of the tunnel. Success!

My beautiful boy Maximus is now living with a lovely loving family that will spoil him for life.

I am unexpectedly moving countries I just could not bring him with me for this. I took my time to find a suitable family to adopt him, and he is to live out his life in his enclosure that I made for him. I miss him loads but I am confident and comforted knowing he is with an amazing family that have his absolute best in mind and heart. It has been an honor to get to know him and help him on his way in life.

Thank you to everyone for reading about Maximus up until this point, both me and him are on to new adventures.

Aww, we'll miss you and little Maximus but life has a habit of changing direction.

Wishing you and Maximus all the best for your future adventures. It was a pleasure to have met you both.
