Thanks for that dood.must learn how to link it

The small cunningham doing the hassling was a young one i got with original group,i was hoping it was a female but looks like im wrong,it usually goes and stays in the lowlands side of enclosure,but these guys can squeeze through to either side and lately have been chopping and changing sides as a trio and sticking close,the biggest one that bormallu hangs with the female was with them earlier but moved off when these to started fooling around

These Cunninghams are your pets? I was thinking they got into your enclosure some how. It is funny how the Blotchies crawl right over them!

or vice versa,cunninghams climb over the blotchies,at feed time when the blotchies pile up around the food bowls the cunninghams use them as stepping stones to access the tucker,lol
