  • These videos of Maya finding things to add to her den front would be sooooo funny if it I did not suspect the reason was imminent brooding.

It looked like she was actually trying to plant it!

I know, even my son saw that if you listen to the video. She is quite a character. When her mantle first started to get full she was very restless and made me think she was afraid or confused about her body changes. Now she seems to have adjusted so I am afraid she will stop coming out soon but she is still eating and forages at least for a short time during the day so I am hoping we still have a little more time. I really wish we could breed this species.
