Field Study Observations
These creatures are adorable to watch. The smallest one in the group fell over several times this morning and then cried out only to get the attention of the larger one. The species on a whole does not seem to have good balance but the little ones seem to struggle the most. It is no wonder they spend all of their day on the ground.
The subjects seem to have spent yet another day lazing about. They seem to be a very lonely species too. Each one for the most part spent time in a different place sleeping. I wonder if they are nocturnal.
Not one of them looked like they were at all concerned by the coming winter. I have watched the one that I assume to be the female of the species spend much of her time taking food out of one container, putting the food into another container, eating some of the food and then putting the rest of it back in a different container.
At one point they opened up one of their hiding places to put something in. They have no food at all in there, only loads of colourful things that you cannot eat.
I think my study of this species will have to continue for a little while longer until I can get to the point where I understand some of their strange behaviours better. I have found the perfect location to do this.
