Sunday Smile: Rana Checks For Snacks

Rana isn’t always subtle when it comes to requesting snacks from her caregivers. She will often just open her mouth (as you can see here) as if to say: insert food here, please. After a check-up along the fence line or training wall, we will occasionally oblige if we have some snacks with us, though it’s not something we do at meal time; at breakfast and dinner, everyone gets their food specifically spaced out to avoid any unnecessary “sharing”. But Rana can be so charming at times, it’s hard not to capture these moments when she feels it’s time for a snack and we are trying to get a close-up photo. In those instances when you don’t have anything for her and she realizes that you’re just visiting, she will put her nose down and ask for some affection. Either way, it’s hard to deny that she’s beyond cute.

    love that she asks you for both snacks and affection, maybe snacks = affection sometimes and she’s happy with both. But hilarious how she opens her mouth for snacks like she’s thinking I’ll make the request real simple for these humans then they’ll get it!
