"This is the 4th time that I've observed this behavior now, I believe.

"She will wrap her tail somewhat tight around a narrow branch while the misting system is going off, allowing water to pool, and then will curl back to drink from that pooled water, before it all drains down the branch."

That is so smart! Is that something they would do in nature or is it just unique to this one?

I really don't know. There's probably nobody out in the wild while it rains checking all the narrow branches. ;)

If this behavior is unique, it's certainly a remarkable adaptation!
