Pua goes to see Santa

Are we there yet?

Are we there yet?

"Went to see Santa. I was good and didn't pee in the crate till on the ride home, which earned me a walk in the park. I posed real nice too but the photographer wasn't ready and I got bored and wanted down so I'm a little squirmy in the photo. But still looks pretty good. I get a bit ADD when out. Everything is just soo exciting. Mom thought Santa was holding me real tight when she tried to pick me up but I had hold of his leg with my tail." Pua

To keep it short since it was raining we just let her run around the park but she loved running in the rain.

Pua takes advantage of a hole in the hammock back. I blame Mandua, ha. He must have done it while here. Pua doesn't tear holes in her hammocks like the boys do.

Getting some air

Poking her little nose out of the pocket.

It's a hammock

I put this up to try and make Mandua feel safer going from shelf to shelf.

Pua found it annoying and grabbed the shelf around it to pull up then started using the hammock for just one claw hold as she'd go up.

Last night she was dozing on the shelf and it dawned on her that this is a hammock, though a small one.

Pua got up as I was cleaning up her food so I put it back out. Then she just sat there so I decided to give her her bath. After she sat on the washer pouting so I put a blanket on her. Finally she decided she'd made her point and went to bed.

Because your tamandua suddenly spotting blood can be frightening here's some photos of Pua's monthly(mostly) spotting. Average cycle is 45 days based on certain studies but Pua has always been 28-30 days most times but she is also often irregular.

For more info microscopic photos of tamandua anteater pre-estrus fluid

You can see blood cells in this though some look a little damaged(Echinocytes) since it was drying out and I used glass slides which also causes this. She wanted to play not cooperate.

The stuff I looked at before but hadn't taken a photo of was just epithelial cells, what gathers there in between her monthly spotting sometimes.
