LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, I GIVE YOU... NUTKA !
Let me introduce the new tenant - Nutka :-) I was writing about her in the previous post, now I would like to share some quick pictures of her I've taken lately. They are low quality since she's still very hectic and frightened easily so I'm trying not to scare her with the camera. Hopefully, soon I'll be able to present better shots, maybe even some close ups of this sweet little black bear.
Because of Nutka's age (about 3 months) and the fact that she practicaly doesn't know a human touch (except of rough pet store occasional treatment while cleaning, feeding or moving her to another location), I may encounter some difficulties in the taming process. I'm aware of that, but I'm also faithfull 'cause Nutka is very trusting: she's already happened to touch my nose with her nose and took a piece of an apple from my fingers. First of all I had to solve another problem, though: very quickly it turned out that the top part of the tubes which connects two cage sections together is too high after all. I had to rearrange the whole construction just to lower it a lil' bit, enough to be climbed at. Here it is:
Thus far, Nutka is living (sleeping) in the second cage (closer to the flower), where she's made herself a cosy little burrow in the cartoon tuba hidden in the litter. That's where she spends the day. In the night she's moving to the first cage (under the bulbs), where she's running in the spinning wheel almost whole night long. For now it seems that the tubes and their transparent bulbs are only the passage, not the apartment ;-) It's so uncommon behaviour in comparison to Lilly's and Kropeczka's habits! I wonder if it'll change in time...
