The January 2017 Life History files are uploaded.
Some of the most important events:
- Swift, at Whiskers, is pregnant again.
- Jaxx and Lazuli have swapped males – Lazuli’s LLCoolJ now leads Jaxx, whereas Jaxx’ short-time dominant Polon (5 months old) is now dominant at Lazuli.
- Logi (VBBF104), dominant female at Ubuntu, disappeared just after giving birth – but reappeared 3 weeks later, recovering from a snake bite and apparently raising her litter! She lost dominance however.
- Ex Ewoks dominant male Tigi (VRRM113) made an appearance at Lazuli, about a year after he was last seen!
- Both wild males at Pandora disappeared, probably due to TB. Van Helsing’s Cheesy Toast (VVHM092) took over dominance.
- Dispersal groups Stumpy’s Angels, Creampie and Glennfiddich are extinct after their dominant females succumbed to TB.
- The KMP has received 124 mm of rain – good after a slow start of the rainy season!
