Favorite treats: Gerber cereal puffs, Freeze dried minnows
Favorite toys and activities: Roughhousing with brothers, shredding paper toys
Potty trained: We’re working on it!
This animal daily routine: These young guys like to sleep all day then raise a ruckus at about 3am!
BFF (Does this animal have or need a same species friend in their home?): Yes, Templeton is bonded to Megavolt, Roland and Rizzo!
Other species this pet has been exposed to and reaction: Housecat has kept her distance so they haven't interacted much
Health concerns: None
Behavioral concerns: None
Other notes: Templeton is slowly coming out of his shell, he's probably the most inquisitive of the four. Mouthy to the point of breaking skin, but definitely not a bite, we're working on being gentle. He's still mouthy and couldn't care less about human interaction
