Hopefully he's smarter than mine  %)

 

Also as an update for this, my woodlouse spider escaped.  :thinking: it happened while i was moving its enclosure to a better one to dig in and she kinda ran out the cup and then took off. sooo... i didn't feel like going under the table to check in cracks waiting for her to drop on my face

I can hold one of my guinea pigs for over an hour now. The key was just picking him up every day, and gradually increasing the time out of his cage. This process took about a year.

Solenopsis truncorum, Solenopsis "plebeius", Solenopsis validiuscula, Solenopsis sp., Solenopsis xyloni, Solenopsis amblychila, Camponotus vicinus, Camponotus maritimus, Formica cf. subaenescens, Formica cf. aerata, Lasius cf. americanus, Lasius aphidicola, Lasius brevicornis, Lasius nr claviger, Pheidole navigans, Nylanderia vividula, Aphaenogaster occidentalis, Temnothorax rudis, Temnothorax cf. nitens, Pogonomyrmex californicus, and Strumigenys membranifera

 

People are stupid. It explains a lot...

awesome! i used to have gerbils, and wish i still had. they were so fast, but they didn't love to be cuddled as much as guinea pigs.

I used to have a gerbil with no tail! Which is called a hamster it loved to be held and would literally spit food into our hand because it loved us. It never bit me either.

One of my guinea pigs squeaks(the one who isn't so fond of being held), can be heard through the whole house! He also gets so excited about hay, that he'll lean out of the cage, and be pushed by Pip, the super friendly one, into the bin. Or sometimes he just falls in.
