Well today was the day. Silas got out of his cage onto his new free range plant today. He was checking it out and seemed to enjoy his freedom. I was able to approach him and get him on my hand and was able to have him on my hand for a little while. He didn't try to bite , but was a little apprehensive (puffing his chin a little), but all went well. After a little while I put him back in his cage. I was pretty excited to have him on my hand for the first time. Hopefully he will become more used to me and will want to come out more often.
