Negro's progress

In this photograph of Negro’s temporary small enclosure, you can see that he has Rosita as a dinner guest. It shows him walking on his forearms rather than his hands. This is one of the telltale signs of Rickets disease. He is avoiding the wrist pain by doing this. He appears otherwise healthy. He has started joining in the morning chorus, not a loud voice yet but he is taking part. He climbs the enclosure walls apparently without discomfort. His appetite is still giving us a little concern although he drinks the fortified milk with the calcium and vitamin ‘D’ addition. He is a charming little fellow and the staff already love him. He is never short of admirers.
