    Thumbs up "playing dead" garg!

    I've been meaning to put these pics up for a while now.

    when I first got this boy I notice that he was acting kida funny when I picked him up. he would tuck his feet in and make little fists, keep his tail completely rigid, and stay completely still. then I realized he was pretending to be dead so I would leave him alone, lol.
    after a few minutes he would act completely normal and walk on my hand.







    here he is after he realized it wasn't working, lol.




    has anyone else observed this behavior in gargs?

    Una is the queen of this. Almost every time I take her out she 'plays dead'. I'm glad I'm not the only one with a possum-gargoyle.
