Pretty baby

I took this video last week of Beeps.  He was quite excited, doing his special whistle and saying "pretty baby!" and I wanted to get it on video.  When he saw the camera, he got even more excited and started doing his head snaking and marching around.  Had I continued much longer, I would have risked a bite.

He usually does the whistle that I do here, then follows with "pretty baby!" but the camera alters his behavior.  I did the whistle, trying to get him to end with "pretty baby!" -- this worked twice while I filmed, but usually has a much better success rate.  The camera really does trigger him!

As soon as I removed the camera from his sight, he stopped his menacing behavior.
