When a trainer asks, the individual sometimes helps the trainer to clean up the place below the door of the chute by removing twigs using his hands so that the door can be closed easily. The individual does not pull out and throw a plant with roots, which were seen in the past. He does not masturbate alone. He does not become nervous of the copulation with Daiko in the chute even if he is seen by a trainer.
This individual is interested in humans. He is curious so he picks a caretaker's shoe sole by his finger or a twig and enjoys seeing the caretaker's reaction.
