Crabitat Complete, and Snooty at my Salads!

I've just done him another dish of greens, he's got sweet lettuce, soft dandelion, parsley and finely chopped carrot today. Because he's so small, and his viv is so large, I pop him into a box with his dinner and bugs - but today, he was in a mean temper. I mean, he openly threatened me with wide mouth and everything! Well. I'm not having bad attitude from my animals. So I took advantage of his open mush, and popped a bit of dandelion leaf in it. He was a bit surprised I can tell you, but he's eaten it, and not given me any more aggression. Strange little animal. I imagine he'll eventually associate me picking him up with food, but at the moment he's very skittish, so I'm going to hop in the shower and leave him to eat.

Kuley's eaten some of the bugs, and possibly nibbled on his salad, so I let him back out. After a kamikaze dive off my hand (my quick reflexes saved him from hurting himself, whipped my other hand under his belly) he chilled out a bit. I went to pop him back in, but he walked up my arm. Ok, you can sit on my shirt for a bit, sure. After a few minutes, I tried again. He happily walked down my hand and leaped onto his hut. (Thanks to for the image! Some nice ideas on there, will try him with some.) Little ratbag - he threatened me again later on. I dripped water on his tongue. He was again, surprised, but drank it. Few minutes later, he turned around a bit, licked me and went to sleep. Got very relaxed - he went and crapped on me.

Crabitat is complete, I'm just moving it now... Hmm. And as always, there's not enough sockets. I've popped the hygro/thermometer in there, and will take some readings over the next couple of hours to see if it's suitable. I'll take some photos when I've moved the beasties in.

More of my stuff arrived on Sunday, and I'm pleased to say I have all my hats, and my full Doctor Who book collection. My grandmother DIDN'T hit the roof when I showed her my baby dragon, so that's alright, and they even found room for my bike. I don't know how - it's a Ford Bloomin' Fiesta - but my loach tank arrived safe, sound and a bit grubby. Scrubbed it up a bit, and looks a lot better - loaches are busy whipping about.
Anyway, as you can see, it's a bit chaotic, so sorry about the delay!

  1. Are you being intentionally ironic? I'm not sure CTL counts as attribution! It hardly identifies me.

  2. *laughing* It was a point well made :P
