Just before 11 last night I heard the first squeals. Aurora had her baby.
Gender unknown for now. Born eyes and ears closed but shortly eyes and ears opened up.
He/she had a good set of lungs on it. Quieted down after a bit.
Mom is doing a good job. Read the instinct is to squeal if not on mom so she comes to get it. Still hear a squeal now and then but she keeps baby close.
New Born Baby Tamandua
Hyzzie is whining in the background afraid something is wrong. She thinks she's house nurse.
You can see an ear
New born baby tamandua 2
Not much of him/her this time but you get some of his face and see the ears have opened up
Pua sitting quietly taking this event in
a little bloody as she had passed the placenta and was eating it.
Possibly the first photo of a tamandua eating her placenta. I put a white towel down when she was done for a nicer place to lay and check for bleeding which she wasn't.
