One of a kind, original Whidbey Island beach stone painting
Choosing a rock according to the size needed, they eat away the inside, using their strong sharp teeth and claws. Little Creepers are fairly harmless, keeping to themselves, and living on a diet of minerals, salt and water, (and they feed themselves!). They are very loyal pets and will not stray, so they can be kept in or outdoors.
Adult Creepers can be difficult to find, as they are wise to the fact that they are collectable, but young creepers are fearless, often independent as newborns, making them excellent pets for young children. Occasionally, entire families can be found living together, and when kept together, they adapt to their new surroundings with ease.
It is believed by the residents of Whidbey Island, that the young creepers are quite playful and particularly enjoy playing with, and biting fishing lines, much to the dismay of local fishermen. Some adoptive families have even reported suspected practical jokes from their Creepers, (hiding keys, the remote control, etc.), though this has not yet been proven.
