The December 2016 Life History files are uploaded.
Some of the most important events:
- Swift (VWF176), at Whiskers, gave birth, but the litter was abandoned after a few days, unfortunately – an with them juvenile Lavandula (VWF203) who had stayed with the pups.
- Baobab had a mixed litter of nine pups.
- JubJub Bird (VLF194), the Lazuli dominant female, went missing during a stormy night, probably when a burrow collapsed, and is assumed dead. Elise the Great (VLF219) is now dominant.
- The Quintessentials group disintegrated after the last remaining female Growl Tiger (VQLF019) was found predated. Former dominant male Chewbacca is still roving.
- Laika (VRRF180) took over dominance at Rascals after previous dominant female Edna May (VRRF137) disappeared, probably due to TB.
