Privacy curtain...

Well mango is super timid. i noticed lately hes been really stressed and he spooks even if i talk to him in his cage. so i made him a little fleece strip curtain on the outside of his ledge, so he can hide from me when he feels insecure and maybe might reduce some of his fear and make him more comfortable. he seems to like hiding places (he loves his sleeping tube still to relax in during the day). so hoping to reduce some of the little guy's stress, i made a curtain out of fleece strips. it kinda reminds me of vines in a jungle lol so far he is loving it and seems more relaxed about me near his cage. he shouldnt have to feel timid in his own cage lol poor guy

What a great idea! Mizu was that way for a long while, even when she got comfortable with me she really didn't get over it until I gave her a cage mate. I hope that helps little Mango!
