Summer Fun with Pua

http://taqmanduagirl.blogspot.com/20...2_archive.html
We passed a couple dogs on the way. I had to carry her past a big one. they seemed to think their dog was vicious so chose to get off the trail with him to let us past. He looked okay but that was nice of them.


Tree Sniffing


Climbing a cliff

She went down a deer path but came up the hard way

Pua found a mud hole


Muddy Anteater


Heading across the rock bridge

Pua checks out the water

She kept checking out the river but not going in

Looking for a way across


I'm not swimming today


I found something


Smelling the breeze


Traversing the tree roots


Rinsing off

I set her in the shallows to rinse the stinky mud off. She was not happy.

I quit

Pua's legs turned to jello

It's nice having a carry bag

I carried her half way back then she woke up and walked

Crossing the decaying bridge

Lots of hard work, really. Spent years just learning about them and developing a good diet based on studies and talking with zoos. Pua was imported From Guyana. She was a failure at wild living and needed nursed back to health. It was a year after contacting the guy before he found me one. We are now waiting on a male for her. He will be from the wild too. I went into this on my blog recently. They are often killed as a nuisance animal. People freak and either kill them or call authorities to come get them just for coming into the yard but some walk right into people's homes. We're anxiously waiting some young male fresh from mom to wander where he shouldn't be and be sent to us instead of killed. The importer will only sell to those with a USDA license.

Stewie was born in Florida so a domestic kid but we were very lucky to get him. There are not enough domestic borns to be found. Of course we hope Pua and her new man will have a kid or two once they get to know each other.

Back to the question a bit I also worked with other exotics for a few years before getting my own.

Gosh! I love Pua! Your pictures are awesome!!
Just curious though...should you really try breeding them? Especially if you get a wild male? Why breed them?? I am just wondering.
