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…
Baobab’s latest litter emerged – it’s a mixed litter of 9 from 3 females! Female Peppina just babysat all of them single-handedly for an entire day (and is probably eager for the group to return from foraging…). Thanks to Tejasvini Chalikonda for the photo!
