LOL. He must think your finger is a giant worm or something.

And now you've got me wondering what his name is. Please pm me with it :)

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

Yeah, she's one tough cookie. When I reach for a remote, I can hear her crash into the glass.

She grew up in a 75 gallon tank - thrown in as a fry as a feeder. Her attitude is why she survived, I think. Once she was about an inch long, she ruled the tank (African knife, bichir, featherfin - all 7 inches, and a 5 inch ctenopoma, plus the congos). I later moved her to the 55, which had chanchito cichlids (4-6 inches), tiger barbs and others, and she dominate that tank too. She topped out at 2.5 inches, so now she owns the 10 gallon tank, and the right side of my bed. She does share the tank with a nerite snail, amazingly enough. I just put my rabbit snail in there too - trying to find a tank it likes since breaking down the 55.

Ha ha - Love it! She really wants to take a chunk out of you.

Thanks for sharing.

She's quite a beggar when she sees me feed the 125. It's a love/hate relationship

The videos were taken in succession, so that was basically a 10 minute attack.
