I was just curious. I thought this was normal behavior for most carnivores and in most videos I've seen with them eating frankenprey they just seem to chew and pull or try to cut it with their back scissor like teeth. I would watch and think "why aren't they using their claws to hold it for more leverage"? I just thought it was odd that I'd never seen them do it.

I don't see Tadakichi do this, but Akiko does on all but the smallest meat chunks. She also has a broken canine and one of her back teeth was removed during a cleaning, so she probably really needs that extra leverage. I have to clean meat gunk out of her claws on a regular basis too.
