Wand Training Graduation

Comet continues to get better and better at performing his tricks. I've recently found that for quite a few of his tricks, including hoop, chimney, tunnel and basketball, he doesn't even need the feeding wand anymore.

Since he's become very comfortable eating from my hand, I can rewards him by simply pinching a piece of food between my fingertips and inserting it into the water after he successfully performs one of his tricks. It is easier, and I think more impressive for spectators, to train him this way.
