My Burmese blacks and browns have so imprinted on me when it comes to food, I get attacked everytime I enter their enclosure. They all come trundling up to me when they see me...and then they bite me. Even when I put the food down for them, they still are focused on me. I can distract or redirect the ones in front of me, it's the ones coming up behind me that pose a threat. Ankles nipped, calfs pinched...It was cute when they were tennis-ball sized, but there's nothing cute about a bite from one of behemoths now. I love these guys, greatest tortoises I've ever kept, but their responsiveness be a two-edged sword. Just sayin'.
