      Came home to find my Nandus Nandus, which normally hangs out in the plants vertical buried in the gravel like a Goby or Halibut. I've had him for over a year and he's never done this before. I did check to see if he was ok after getting a few picts, stuck my hand in the tanks and he went flying out of the gravel and back into the plant.

      Check it out! Anyone else's do this?

      I have sand smaller than your gravel, and my Nandus has never buried itself, nor have I heard of one doing this.

      Nope this is the first time he's done this. I figured I better take a pic or nobody would believe me! :)

      He ate like a pig tonight, maybe he was trying out new hunting techniques :)

      LOL... That is oddly cute. i had a feeder once that i thought was doing this, turns out half his body was missing.

      Your nandus is either wanting to eat, or avoid being eaten..lol. Nice pic!
