PLAYGROUP: Summary MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 10/30/2016 Medical orange During his initial medical examination, Puffin attempted to snap at his caretakers upon handling. ENERGY LEVEL: RECOMMENDATIONS: Experience _X_No children (under 13) Potential challenges: _X_Fearful/potential for defensive aggression (Puffin has been observed to display fearful behavior during his stay at our care centers; at times will avoid interaction and shy away from direct-touch. Puffin may easily startle and is made uncomfortable by loud noises and sudden movement and will display proper warning signals as well as increase distance from anything that may present a threat. We cannot be certain if any other behavior is suppressed as a result of his environment. A period of decompression is advised before introduction or exposure to new and unfamiliar situations. Force-free, reward based training is advised.)
