During my mannnnnny hours of watching Zoe I've noticed this thing he does...over and over again.
I call it playing lizard Twister, with HIMSELF.
He'll go to move from one area to another...reach out...and grab his own foot...or his tail.
But instead of letting go once he realizes he has ahold of himself...he tries to pull away the body part being HELD. He ends up in a mini wrestling match with himself..and he just doesn't seem to GET it.
I've also seen him go to step forward with his back foot, and when he brings it down to grab the branch...he'll also grab some of his belly. Instead of letting go with his foot, he pulls his side away from the foot that is pinching him. It HAS to hurt, and it IS his own foot, and side...you'd think at some point he'd realize he's doing this to himself.

I just don't know about this guy. Is it just Zoe...or are they all a little ....ummmm....ODD?
