Tentative togetherness!

on July 27, 2012

Now that the Emerys (emus) are big enough, we have been able to transfer them into a larger area to join Okami and Uluru, the alpacas. This is the first time I have ever seen the alpacas a little feisty. Today, whenever the Emerys ventured near to the alpacas, Okami, the biggest, would hiss and Uluru would copy him. This caused the timid Emerys to zigzag-sprint all over the place – hilarious!

Uluru: I don’t like this situation, Okami.

Okami: Just ignore them and they might go away.

Uluru: Yeah, but they’re too big to get through the fences now.

Okami: Good point. Okay, let’s just hope this is temporary.

Uluru: I’ve never heard you hiss before – it was amazing!

Okami: I’ve never heard me hiss before either, Uluru, but I never cease to amaze myself. Now keep eating; we don’t want them getting our food too.

Uluru: Would you like me to chase them again?

Okami: That’s a good idea; you chase and I’ll eat. Off you go.

  9. Let’s all think of it as an animal-version of networking. Except animals don’t need to network.
    … No. Not really.
