So, I decided I wanted to try out a dig box with my girls. It's a pretty simple one, just some soil/sand mix, rocks, and a bit of dried grass. They both seemed pretty interested in it, and Dela jumped in pretty quick. And then came out with a rock. And then proceeded to try and eat said rock. I'm not really sure what to make of this behavior...? Then Neera stole the rock from her and she started trying to eat it! I took the rock away from them and removed the dig box.

Is this harmful for them? The "rock" is probably just really hard-packed dirt and not a true rock, but why are they trying to eat ​it? Should I just let them do this? ._.

Probably isn't any different than letting them chew lava ledges. Mine demolish lava ledges and haven't had any problem.

Okay. XDD I just wanted to make sure it wasn't hurting them or anything! They seemed to enjoy doing it. ._.
