The individual sometimes displays to a group of elementary school students by hitting its quarters. He pretends not to look at a mate, but actually looks at the mate through its shoulder. He does not perform practical jokes such as pouring water.
The individual is extremely friendly to humans presumably because he used to be taken for a walk by humans until he was four or five years old. He likes his back to be scratched over the fence by a zookeeper, and he is delighted when tickled.
