ABOUT MR.B

Mr B came to live with us after he was confiscated from a local hotel where he had been kept as an “attraction”. Before he was rescued Mr. B lived in cage just over one square metre in size for 14 years and had lost his innate and instinctive climbing ability. When Mr B first arrived, he only walked on the ground in his new large enclosure. We needed to teach Mr B how to climb, placing bits of food higher and higher in the trees in his enclosure. He now climbs very well and also enjoys the little pool in his enclosure.
