    Default Attacked!!

    Well last night i mixed up my crestie's CGD with some babyfood like i always do becuase i am still in the process of switching him over. Anyway i used banana babyfood instead of the mango which i usually used and i put it on the end of a spoon and he practically attacked it! I felt sorry for the spoon :lol: Anyway it was rather funny, he practically almost took the spoon out of my hand.

    I guess he's got a thing for banana, huh. It reminds me of the time I was offering one of mine some baby food from the tip of my finger and he latched on like a pit bull. Didn't hurt just surprised the hell out of me, didn't expect him to attack like that.

    Yeah i had that happen the first night he arrived. People were like "you can feed them baby food right off your hand". Nessie came the first night and i put some mango babyfood on my finger and he launched at it, LAUNCHED.

    Thank goodness it was mango and not banana :lol:

    Reminds me of when I fed my cresties night before last. I gave them some of Clark's diet and my group of girls came RUNNING. I laughed my butt off and thought it was pretty cool when Sandi jumped on my hand before I'd even finished putting the food down and started eating while on her human perch.

    I've never had any cresteds latch on to my fingers while feeding, but I did have a hatchling get mad, squeak and latch on to my pinky while I was trying to move it from the incubator into it's new cage. :lol:
