    just put a cricket in w/ my sling. it was sittin on the wall. cricket walked right under him. just when i thought "u moron", the thing dove all the way across 5inches and landed on top of the thing. pretty talented for that little, i guess. or at least i never seen it. (some already know this, but b4 u ask, yes its my first one, so everything it duz seems cool)

    Yeah, mine decided to leap off my hand as I was raising him to put him back into his cage, he spread his legs and dropped around 4-5 feet. My experience was less fun and more OMG my avic may have just killed himself.

    i just found one on youtube. i couldnt video mine. i didnt even expect it to do that. i guess it just does it when it really wants to. or wants to get somewhere really bad. you see that vid on you tube i was talking about. where the dude has his hands apart to where it cant just step from one hand to another. so, it jumps?
