when they do though its generally hard and pretty accurate.

Bizarre royal

one of ours does not strike at all. The only way I can describe what she does is too say she gently and politely leans over puts her mouth around her food and takes it. The girl has real manners unlike all the others if it were not for fast reflexes they would have the food, prongs, hand, wrist and arm lol

hey man
you should respect your pet

when we decide to have these animals we have to know that things like this will happen, and we have to look for a way to solve the problem

remember that your pet didnt make the desision to be in captivity with you, so the less you can do is to respect it man, its not his fault

you'd better look for feeding tips}

patience.

greetings man

Mine will do occasionaly, but one thing i have noticed with me is sometimes I move ever so slightly when she strikes - almost like an involuntary reaction to her striking. Do you think you could be doing this at all?

possibly chap will take that into account, i will often let him just take it off the floor but i like to give him a something to strike at too if you know what i mean.

wish mine had a bad aim, but she thinks that anything thatz goes in is food, (including me) strikes instantly upon sight and unfortunately hasn't missed yet.
wish my king was so happy about food, n wish she'd calm down a bit
