We caught the nesting and birthing on video! Dallas was an amazing mom and we have 8 new little ones!
Each baby has its own birth sack and placenta, which mom eats. Dallas got all but two and that’s what you can see her eating in the video.
The video isn’t professional quality, but it’s more than you usually see. Enjoy!
(Also need to mention these are not her normal quarters! This is a special cage we’re using because we had to bring her inside. It was -6* last night! We will move her back to her big space as soon as we can without losing all of them to the cold weather.)
