Teddy is elusive and fast! He is getting used to being around people and now comes out of hiding to say hi – likely in hopes of a treat! Teddy loves his wheel and chomping on his straw ball. He is a big fan of berries, apples and sweet potatoes. Lettuce and carrots he will pass on and will literally toss them out of his food bowl!
