Ray turns 10 today! In old school movies, Ray would have been considered the "strong and silent" type. He's considered higher ranking in his group of nine adolescent males, which includes high-ranking Hercules. Ray has yet to go out into the forested habitat, preferring to watch the others from the villa doorstep. He may be one of the last in his group to explore the outdoors, but that's just fine. It's his choice and that's what we celebrate most. Happy Birthday, Ray! .
