We read they are actually a food staple for people in some countries in South America. Peru or Chile maybe?

At least if they try to run away they aren't getting very far.

The few we had couldn't even jump (purposely) 2-3 inches. They did tend to have random seizure-like jumps that exceeded that distance but we doubt they could use that to their advantage during an escape attempt.
