Machu is up in the morning a lot, it's fun to wake up and have Machu up and running around! He is inquisitive, energetic and sweet.
Personality: Inquisitive, Playful, Energetic, Nervous, Mouthy (puts mouth on you but does not bite down, usually thinking your fingers are food). He is curious about cats.
Pisa likes to run on his wheel, burrow, and climb! Pisa tends to be more active throughout the night and in the morning. He is generally handled in the evening.
Loot likes to run in your hands. It is cute to go say hi and he sticks his head out of the bedding, mouth open a little, cheeks and nose sniffing, looking up, I feel like he is saying, “Oh, hi there!" His facial features are very adorable, he has so much character in such a small bundle.
Spell is an explorer. If the lid to his bin is left open he will climb up his water bottle and jump right out!
