The individual is slick. Although he comes to a zookeeper and apologizes by holding out his hand when he commits bad things, the attitude is often a pretension. He seems to dislike humans in general. He used to make mischievous acts such as spitting on or splashing water to humans when he was young, but he rarely does those things recently.
