The follow up to this video is unexpectedly in my mystery box video. I wasn't expecting it, but like I demonstrate in this video on the page, solutions and situations just kind of evolve for me. I do what I feel instinctively might work or that I think has the potential to change the dynamic positively and I go from there and continue adapting and changing.
If you don't want to watch the follow up here is what happened:
I took Comet out of the aviaries to go on a fall photoshoot with me. After putting him in my car, I thought, maybe Tusa and Jinx will get along in a divided aviary now that Comet isn't present. So I tried it, watched them for a while, nothing happened and figured it was good and went on my photoshoot. I brought Comet back after the shoot and put him in the far right enclosure and still the dynamic stayed positive. I was so thrilled! It's a huge victory for me after going through this insanely tense training in the video above!
I hope to have training footage from doing this same sort of process with two Swainson toucans before the end of the year if I can locate the footage.
