The December Life History files have been uploaded.
Here are the most important events:
- There are 20 females pregnant at the end of the month – peak breeding season! Unfortunately, several groups lost their young pups however – Jaxx, for example, lost 5 of their 6 new pups.
- 2 come, 2 go… There are two new dispersal groups on the mark sheet: Freetails (formerly Lazuli 3) consisting of 3 Lazuli evictees with a changing company of males. And Run Amuk consist of Jaxx’ long-term No. 2 Jazzy Jeff with two Jaxx females. At the same time however, the TB-or-not-TB group was lost after the only collared female was found dead, while the Yetis group dwindled possibly due to TB.
