This is a video recording of me introducing a new snack to the African Giant Pouched Rats (Cricetomys ansorgei) - fresh pumpkin seeds.
This fellow really seems to like it. I'm super impressed by this species dexterity. His handling of this seeds shows that.
This is just a snap shot of an experiment I am presently writing. Fingers crossed that the manuscript will be complete by the end of the week. As always I appreciate your support.
