    All I can say is woah what a difference between them.
    Indoor ones are twice the size but seem dumber and less adventurous.
    Where the out door ones are small but they are out and about with there mother exploring the back yard. They also see a lot smarter and if they cant get up one bit they will move along to a easyer accessable part where the indoor ones will just keep trying in the same spot.

    Yep, same thing happened with my brother and me. He stayed indoors all of the time, ate continually and is twice as big as me, but the boy is dumb as a box of rocks. Like bird/like boy. "Just sayin'".
