They take about 8 bites. If not 8 then 7 or 9 but most times 8. You can hang back behind them and count their chomps. I tried going under. People said they don’t care but the one I tamed kept making me going in circles to avoid getting pushed. I decided to hang back instead by a fair distance like at the tip of the tail
They are very playful and like pushing you back. If you can get underneath them you can stay there (they won’t move out of fear of hurting you and they can’t pish you away) and you can tame them for there. I go right under their stomach and it is best to come under from behind.
