Ori Cinco

Postby TamanduaGirl » Mon May 30, 2011 5:18 pm

So it's been so long since I posted I thought I'd make a new thread. Turns out Cinco is a girl after all. I swear she was very pointy as a baby so looked very male but she has now rounded out and her mound can be opened up so for sure a female. So after a few days of deliberation I've renamed her Ori Cinco. I didn't want to lose the Cinco part all together. Ori is a native Guyana word that means Woman.

Her early interest in dresses is now not so weird.

I'm not sure how I missed this thread. I would have commented a lot sooner.

Ori Cinco is adorable. The pictures you took show what character she has. It's a shame she isn't a boy like you thought at first. Do you still think you will keep her? Or do you think you may sell/trade her for a male?

I found this ad where two male tamanduas are for sale. http://exoticanimalsforsale.net/sale/2657_Rare_Wildlife_PrimatesSUMMER_SALE.asp I'm not sure if you'd be interested or not, but I figured I should let you know.

How long will she still ride around on Aurora and when will she become independent? I remember you saying that they should be weaned after about a year, I think... But I see she is eating "real foods" by your picture.

My favorite pictures are the ones of her sleeping, and the one of her captioned "I'm not being naughty." Those are so cute!

Yeah I could get those cheaper if I wanted but we tried that already. I got Eldorado from the importer to replace the non-vested that didn't survive shipping. Pua HATED him. She was scared at first but then she started hunting him down to attack him. The non or lightly vested like Pua will not mix with the lowly non-royal dark vested subspecies. It's proven true many times now but no one knew the subspecies wouldn't mix because it's been so long since the vested were available till last year. Hard to believe that was just last year. Been a busy year.

I plan to keep all three and we are on the list to get a Golden baby male(To match Pua). Hopefully Pua can have babies because I think it's a recessive trait. I plan to keep all three and the lucky Golden boy can have himself a harem. If 4 ends up driving me crazy I would rehome Aurora later to a breeding environment like she's used to or to my friend who has a lonely girl so they would at least both have a friend. But I'm thinking there wont be too much more difference between 3 and 4 and having 3 breeding girls would be great.

I'll be getting him through my friend who is an importer and her exporter in South America also has and breeds them so he will be captive born unless they get lucky and stumble across a little baby golden young enough to be tame.

Mom will let baby ride the whole time but Ori is having trouble now due to size

She sort of half rides. Last time I weighed her she was 6.5 pounds but I think she's at least 7 now as she had a growth spurt.

She is eating food but still nursing too. Girls do mature faster than boys and will often cycle the first time at about 8 months. Males become sexually mature at a year. As contrast Stewie was 7 pounds at 8 months, or that big at 4.5

Ori does go off on her own to play at night but only over along the shelves to the cage top so she can get back to mom quick if need be.

She looks like she's doing well. A real cutie. What does Pua think about her? Has Aurora calmed down?

I just got Video of all three last night, before I was just moderating their interactions, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6SuPlmTORZ4
I held Ori for Pua to check out a few times and Pua wanted to play with her but Ori was scared since Pua had been mean to her when still little and creepy. That seemed to flip a switch in Pua's mind and she decided Aurora couldn't be all bad since she had a cute kid and she started trying to play with her. Her first attempt though was to just to play pounce on her out of the blue. Aurora was not happy about that and growled at her. So then Pua clawed at the log and would try slowly raising a claw to show she was playing but Aurora was already disturbed so would growl. About a week later we have the above.

Photo from another occasion in between. She groomed her rump a bit first.

As to Aurora calming down. Some. I don't think she will ever be a pet in the traditional sense. I can touch her but she doesn't like it, like I pet her in one of the earlier videos. She has gotten used to my being around and not attacking her but she doesn't truly trust me and doesn't like me watching her or her baby for too long. I can handle her baby without her freaking out, especially if they are out running around. In the nest when she notices me messing around to long she gets a bit nervous. So she seems settled in her life here which is still mostly sleeping in the closet but she'll never be like Pua.

Oh and Aurora still growls like the devil when I pick her up.

When you get the male, he is going to be one happy man. :icon-wink: Three women all to himself.

So is there a large network of people in the US who are breeding/trading tamanduas? I believe you had said before that you worked with chasing-tail and had gotten a male from her once for Pua.

I guess I'm asking if people with tamanduas lend out their males when there are females ready to breed. Does that happen often? Would you be able to find anyone that you could "pair up" your females with?

No it's not done regularly. You need to be willing to have your animal in someone else care for several months. I could send Aurora to spend time with one of Chasing tail's breeding groups for awhile later but I think Pua might die from the drastic change in living environments. She's terribly spoiled.

:shock: wow, I'll say they can move fast.

when I looked at some of your videos, they almost reminded me of a sloth,
but, not as slow of course.
