Hi Spinyfriend

It’s lovely to hear that Pegleg successfully survived hibernation. I suspect Blotchey was trying to get into the box or encourage Pegleg out, so that he could do the ‘courtship dance’ successfully (i.e. the courtship circling which they do). Good old Pegleg for standing her ground! If she’s lost one of her legs, hiding in the box entrance seems a good tactic to avoid unwanted attention! With only 3 legs she may not be too keen on getting involved in seemingly endless circling activities, which can go on for hours.

Do you know how Pegleg lost her leg?
