Adrenaline Junky Urchin - Base Jumping

So every morning it's a game to find "Darwin" our little urchin friend. Where'd he end up after his nightly tank tour?
This morning he was still doing laps around the top of the tank. Then I spotted him clinging to the front of a powerhead.

Shortly after taking the pic he let go and dropped to the bottom of the tank, landing nicely in the sand. Must have been a thrill!
He quickly made his way into a rocky hiding hole for the rest of the day.

I'd be worried if you find miniature bungee cords hidden in the tank somewhere.

I guess he's just one of those "Extreme Urchins" I've heard so much about..... cute little bugger.
