This little lady is as perfect as they come. Maia had footwork done today on one of her back feet. It had been a while, because the need for it is greatly reduced with a healthy habitat. But Maia still needs close attention paid to her pads, which weren’t great when she showed up. Although it has been months, she fell right into the groove of trimming, filing and food rewards. A lady never forgets the sound that the fruit loops box makes.
There’s nothing significant going on with her feet and at this point, that foot would need just one more session like today to be good for another few months. Nature does a body good. Her feet are looked at regularly, to check for embedded rocks and other signs of issues, but the checks are usually just quick visuals that let us know her feet look good with no extra care necessary.
Maia’s cooperation and attitude throughout were truly remarkable.
Sorry for the silence lately, we have been without power most of the last few days and now without internet. We are using a backup service, but it’s so bad that we can’t even load the FB page and had someone back home post. Not great for keeping in touch, but the habitat gets more and more stunning by the day.
