    I have never seen anything like this!
    My jumbo PP Penguin went to the food dish, where I had put in a single chunk of sweet potato. He took the nickel sized piece that I put in for the tank to share, and picked it up in his small claw. With it in claw, he then purposefully walked across the tank over to his flower pot where he sleeps every single day, and with the claw tucked in toward his body, and went inside! He actually took the whole piece out of the food dish and made off with it! OMG!
    I have heard they hide food but this is something else! WOW!

    Penguin didnt leave his pot all night! So, I checked the pot this morning (turned it over and dumped him out, heehee!) and it was EMPTY of all potato! He ate the whole thing! But there was plenty of hermie poop! Lol! (sorry to be gross! guess he enjoyed his thanksgiving!)

    I have a large pp I call Piglet [​IMG], he usually takes a piece of banana and shuffles off with it or sits it the dish and eats it all. Now I put three pieces in so the others can have some. I'll have to try sweet potato and see what happens [​IMG]
