I think they use the whiskers (barbels) to root around in the gravel.

I never noticed that mine had them at first, but it does seem to be mainly first thing in the morning that the whiskers are most prominent.

I'm ready for the pressure.

Care Bears. Nothing wrong with me having that kind of avatar, is there?
And unless I see a new avatar, I'm going to be stuck on this. Will search for a pink pony. That would let our members guess that I'm a bit twisted for options.

So how many questions have you counted so far?
But why would everyone confuse my identity?

I'm disappointed with you, fellows. Not even my post of gaping over pretty female members help at all.
