Team 4 Monday, April 12, 2010

In the afternoon I showed Rocky a Reptomin. He ignored the Reptomin so I moved it closer. Rocky didn't bite, so I slowly pulled the Reptomin away, when. . .SNAP. Rocky bit the Reptomin!!
I gave him another and another. He ate one every single second.
After Rocky ate 13 Reptomin, I gave him a blood worm cube.
Here's what he did, first he stood his head up and stared at the bloodworm.
Then he stood still, waiting for it to get closer. Next Rocky took a deep, sharp SNAP, CHOMP, GOLP and in seconds those bloodworms were just a memory. So I fed Rocky 5 more bloodworm cubes.
