Are they planning something so they check around? Maybe it's the omochao uprising... :omochao: :omochao: :omochao:
Darn! They blasted the chao gardens! We gotta go guys! :surprise:

I have no idea what it's actual purpose is but I always interpreted it as them looking for the character you're controlling.

Since it never seems to happen when they're really really hungry, I thought maybe they were starting to feel full and were looking to see if Sonic/Shadow/etc. were watching them eat. If they're not, maybe they can get away with chucking the fruit away unfinished.

So I ended up developing a habit of cold-hard staring at eating Chao whenever I could. "Yeah that's right, finish it all."
heck yeah chao :cool:

Think about how you would eat something. You wouldn't gobble it all down in one go with no breaks, would you? I think the feature exists purely for realism. Though in the SA1DC, I seem to remember chao ploughing through any fruit you'd give them no matter how hungry they were.

Is it possible to get them to stop eating a fruit in that game, like picking the Chao up or something? The moment they touch a fruit they start gobbling it down in seconds, even if they were sleeping before.

Yes, it is possible to disrupt a feeding chao by picking it up. It's difficult to time it right, though. They finish eating in about 5 seconds flat. Worth mentioning that you can't actually pick up the fruit while the chao has it.
