Structure with an A2 sheet of paper attached
The sheet is attached with flour glue (enriched with citric acid against mold formation)
A dab of black finger paint is in the lower left corner
Pili tries to tear off the paper
Cautiously, he loosens a corner and tastes the glue attaching the sheet to the structure
Pembeele also shows interest in the paper and the paint
Madschabu is also part of the group examining the structure, the paper, the paint and the glue
Oseye shows great interest
In the middle of the session she tries to grab the camera
Tzippi finally tears off the whole sheet carefully
Then she rips the sheet into small pieces and tries to eat them
Tzippi also tries to wipe the paint which is on the paper onto the wire grid of the enclosure
Chicca also shows interest in the paint and the paper
Angela says that they probably liked the glue too much. Next time, we will try to add some drops of bitter almond into the glue. The acidity of the citric acid seems to taste too good for them.
We will also try to attach a paint dab of a different color on the sheet, probably a dab of red paint.
