He'd park himself on the floor, and spend a good part of the afternoon using his little front teeth to take off the red part. It was a great way for him to entertain himself for the afternoon.
Of course, he got regular pieces, too, but he really did like to concentrate on scraping the rinds.
That sounds like some of mind. Tango would eat just about any produce that you gave him, and then some.
I would wash celery stalks in a large bowl of water, and he sat next to me and waited for the water, which he'd get in his own dish.
These days, I give the water to Tilde. She likes it, but isn't nearly as happy about it as Tango was.
I hope that your cantaloupe provides fully ripe fruit for you guys.
We have a volunteer which came up in an indoor plant, of all places. We think that it's a pumpkin. It looks good, and is now outside. If no deer discover it, we are looking forward to giving it to the hens. I give them pumpkin every year as a fall tonic, by putting the seeds into a food processor.
Love All Life, Thank You For Posting! :)
