So tonight was the first night I have actually witnessed Ink eating. I have seen the evidence of eating but he has been elusive up until tonight when I fed him some phoenix worms.
Sorry for the poor quality video.
Why didn’t anyone tell me some cresteds eat like demons?! He shook those worms till they didn’t wiggle anymore.
Im very happy he took bugs tonight, I’m hoping this is a sign he is settling in alright. :)

Today is September 4th 2014. It has now been 8 years since the death of one of my greatest heroes.Steven Robert Irwin. In that time, and unlike what my comforting mother, and friends assured me, it has not become easier. In the years since his passing I have watched as animal media feed into the hands of the uneducated, sensationalist, and often even cruel TV show hosts only content in showcasing the brutality, and deadly aspects of wildlife. I have seen no one step up to the plate, no one fill that void he left in the world. Consider this an open letter, to all those as tragically in love with the natural world as I. Get out there, be loud, show your self and your love to the world, educate, experience, and just and just freaking live. We are but one species on what may be the most biodiverse planet in the universe. So get up, and make some damn noise, lose the fear, and show them what you love.

       "Because people want to save, the things that they love."

             We all miss you mate.
