The individual sometimes plays alone. He seems to always move his body. When a human moves in front of him, he chases the human and runs around the entire stockyard. He sometimes climbs up a tree, makes a loud noise by hitting his hand to a wall, and runs around while tumbling. As he started to throw something to our visitors, we do not currently give branches to him for injury prevention.
