    You better stock up on Xanax then! The babies naturally hide from predators that especially means their caregivers! They hide in, dig under and generally work to disappear. If your enclosure is right-no climbing spots you are good. Just prepare!

    My redfoot, Lyric is the same way. I got him when he was 4 years old. I didn't know that he would become as interactive as he is.
