i've never come across one in the wild, they're supposed to be very shy,
so this little one must be very tame.

It appears this little one is in a large tub, so perhaps it was raised up by people and is indeed used to human contact. What a darling.

He was indeed very lucky. That lil cutie was rare indeed in his interaction with a human being. Most of the time they are far more likely to sting you if it is a male. So I think Constance has the right of it and this lil one is used to human contact. Thanks for sharing Christeen.
