Cinco has the tough guy look going here.

He wasn't too impressed.

It did not go well. He stuck his nose down to sniff and he got poked. He reared up and whacked the cup with his claw, sending ants flying everywhere, then ran away. Seems dead ants can still sting.

Eh, might want to think about something a bit more manly.

Aurora got that on her foot after visiting the basket.

For those of you that think having a house-pet anteater is all sunshine and roses: Discovered Aurora was pooping up inside the box spring of my bed. I was worried she was constipated when I stopped finding her poop in the usual spot, at least it was lovely logs. The box-spring is now boarded up.


Aurora moved to the closet because she didn't like me leering at her baby.He kept getting down from the hammock to play on his own so I just had to watch so she gathered him up and left.

Aurora tried using the little hammock but after sitting there for a bit decided it was too small.

I tried giving my hand to go across and he grabbed it but I foolishly let him pull my hand towards him and he decided it wasn't stable enough. So I pulled the corner of the hammock close and he went in.

The next day and he was going back and forth repeatedly like a pro with mom sitting on the window shelf watching him.

That was spooky
That was spooky
I went and made her some more food and she was here instead of sleeping in the hammock as she had been. Guess the blender was scary.

Cinco was on the other side of the house smashing the roof in.

Wait for me!

When I gave Cinco back Aurora had been on the play pen so I sat him there but she turned and went up right away. Cinco tried climbing up after her but took a wrong turn when he saw the hammock. Neither of them could figure it out so I had to retrieve him for her.

Baby Cinco in trouble

Cinco was in the closet and Aurora was in the hammock and seemed to be asking for him. So I got him but I weighed him first then went to return him. Aurora came down so I sat him on the playpen by her but she climbed back up right away. Cinco tried climbing after her but made a wrong turn when he saw the hammock.


Rescued
Rescued

Aurora was over on the cage complaining so I brought her some food. Then headed to the closet to get the old bowl since that's where she was earlier. I got hissed at. Went to step on the stool and got hissed at again and then I realize baby hisses are coming from the floor
.
I got the flashlight and there is Cinco half way up the stool leaning out desperately trying to get hold of the dresser or climb bar to get up. Behind him lays the blue house on the floor.

Not sure if he tumbled with it from trying to climb on it, he's climbed on it before but only mashed it in, or Aurora knocked the house down with Cinco inside as she had been messing around behind the house earlier in the day and might have tried something like that again.

So I go to rescue the little guy and he cries out because I have to peel him off the stool. Nope doesn't cry out when he falls or when he finds himself alone on the floor, just when I rescue him. Aurora was already halfway to me so I just put him on her back. That being the second baby incident that day, I weighed him earlier, she decided it was time to change nests again and moved to the princess hammock.

Good thing Pua volunteered for Laundry day earlier that day. She got to use her princess hammock and then woke early enough to walk the house a bit and sniff out the back window.

    That was so precious with Cinco trying to get out and Aurora trying to get him. I would have loved to see you rescuing him. Thank you so much for the video.

    I just love the video of Cinco trying to get out and Aurora tying to 'save' him. I would love to see you rescuing him. I think it is so great the way Aurora uses you like her personal assistant! Thank you so much for sharing.
