The pumpkin seeds are a nice treat that keeps my boys busy a little longer than any other treat. They always smell the shell at first as if they’re not so sure what their mommy is giving them. But once it’s in their hands they gnaw down! It takes them a good amount of time to get all of the ‘meat’. Therefore, this treat works great if I need to keep them busy for a minute or two, while doing something in their cage, without them running out on me.
