Re: Titan Pics

It looks like he is doing just fine !
Absolutely beautiful, love all of them but the first one with him poking through the coil of the stuffed snake, is fantastic

Thanks

Re: Titan Pics

Glad to see Titan has blended in so well.

The snake pic, wow! That is a must-entry for a future POTM contest!

Re: Titan Pics

Titan sure looks like an awesome bird! The snake picture is hilarious.

Curious, I know he wasn't biting you but is it painful to have such a large bird dangling off your finger like that? Seems he'd have to have a pretty good grip with his beak not to fall and playful or not seems it would hurt!

Actually one of the ways to teach them to be gentle is by picking them up by the beak. Doesn't hurt in the slightest... They hold on without applying any real bite pressure.

The picture of titan lying on your arm/hand..ASLEEP..shows exactly how comfortable he is with you! That,in my mind,is an amazing feat!!

Well done...to the both of you!!

Knowing your household, this may be an issue!
Lol if any of the big snakes were to somehow break their locks or shatter the glass Iíd worry about counting the number of cats first!

He really is! It doesnít hurt at all he isnít really applying any pressure. He squeezes a little more when he tries to climb back up but it started with him hanging upside down by one foot then he maneuvered to hanging by his beak to try and reach the floor. He eventually figured out Iíd lower him to the ground each time so he kept hanging by his beak instead of the upside down shot I was going for lol. He also has a tendency to play behind the couch and Iíll reach down the back and he will grab on to be pulled up hanging off my finger with his beak lol

Here it is lol. He does that high pitch oooh sound when he gets excited about things. He does it every time after I get him out of the cage too.

He was just blinking in that picture (I thought it looked like a funeral pic a bit) but he will play on his back for me or just sit and watch tv like that!

Re: Titan Pics

Those first two pics especially are nothing short of amazing! And the coil pic? I can't even imagine getting either of my ekkies to cooperate enough to allow that! Yet Titan seems to be enjoying it! Lol!
