Pocket & Wax Worm"
by Liat Zeev
I own a 7 month old Cooli Marmoset and I have many funny
stories to tell. My name is Liat Zeev and his name is Tiernan, but back to
the story. If I had to choose the funniest one it would be a toss up
between the hot pocket story and the wax worm story. I'll tell you both
and you can choose I guess.
Hot Pocket Story:
When I first got him he was 5 weeks old so he wasn't very
active. He would either be on his wooby (a small teddy bear) or on me at
all times. I was over at my friend Jessica's house for lunch and I put
Tiernan and his wooby on the table a good foot away from me and my hot
pocket. I began to cut it up and I'm guessing he got a wiff of the crispy
crunchy tender flaky crust cause out of no where he zipped across the
table grabbed a handful of hot pocket, the funny part was he didn't run
like a marmoset back to his wooby, he stood up on his hind legs put his
arms (holding the hot pocket) above his head and ran back to the wooby
screaming as if this was the happiest moment of his life.
Wax worm story:
The first time I gave him wax worms I put two of them in
his food dish and he crept up looking at them not sure of what to think.
He then grabbed one and then the other, now having a worm in each hand. He
looked to one hand then to the other, then back to the first and began to
scream at each of the worms and the proceeded
to bite them and scream some more.
