Pua tries to ditch the paparazzi by dressing as the common working class.

Looking cool, Pua

She looks to be in motion but she sat like that not moving for while before she decided to come out.

Baby Cinco

Posted by: Anteaters & Foxes / Category: , , , , , , , ,

Been putting off posting awhile thinking I could 100% verify age first. I just don't seem to be trusting my eyes on his small little bit. See Baby has a line, which could mean a girl but Stewie had a obvious, distinct line too and was a boy. I think I need some close up photos but will have to see when both mom and baby cooperate.

But I'm 80-85% sure this is a boy with the photo Below since I got lucky and you can see his bits. It's just not a detailed close up. That's not a sexual opening under his tail there but his anus. That much has been obvious all along. He's got a big well defined anal ring.

The sexual mound is a bit less obvious as on males the underside slopes down into the anus. Every male I've had due to this winds up with a spot of poop on the under side from time to time. They can have a line under where a female would have line that, on a girl, opens up along the mound, like a half globe shape. A gentle probing didn't open up the line but then again my finger tends to hide everything.

Anyway you can see the tip here and unless a girl with really big clitoris, they do have them, looks to be a boy.

Not gotten requested photos of foot and hand pad close ups yet but you can zoom in on his foot fairly clearly here.

Aurora did not let Pua into the closet tonight at all but chased her back before she even got off the cage. Pua then moved into the cage hammock and set there awhile and drank the cage water before leaving.

He gave a small growl at me when I pet him and lunged at me but then I rubbed his hand and he curled up around my finger to sleep. This was after I withdrew.

PS this was before I did the nightly changing of the pee pad in there. Also when I put it in it had been soft side up. Someone remodeled.

Where's my baby?!!
Where's my baby?!!
Having lost her baby again Aurora began searching my room for him.

Last night Aurora kept crying. I changed her food, changed the bedding changed her food a few more times. She kept crying. Tired and having a busy day planned I finally tried ignoring her. I was later startled by a hiss at my ear.

Aurora was standing on two legs by the bed. I showed her my hand to sniff and she moved on. Turn out she was looking for baby, who was on her butt. I didn't figure it out right away because I thought that issue was settled. She approached Pua castle and growled at her. "Give me my baby back!" Pua hissed back. "I don't have your baby you crazy lady"

So I tried caging her but then she started screaming, like baby but deeper and horrifying, so I let her out. She retreated to the closet and kept crying so I went and pried baby off her butt and put him in the nest then showed him to her. That made her happy and she settled in the bed with him. I still don't get how you fail to notice a baby on your butt.

Hey Mom, What ya eatin'?
Baby looking to see what Aurora is eating. When I first brought the food and she got up he was pouncing and whacking her wanting to play.


Seems I slept through a demand for food & bedding change last night. I woke up to Aurora at the base of the drier hissing at Pua, Pua hissing back, which made Aurora growl. Aurora did have baby on her butt but maybe she though since I failed to feed her Pua should feed her. I carried her back to the other side of the room and she returned to the closet. I changed her bedding and gave her fresh food and she settled in.

Pua occasionally will try to go in the closet and Aurora chases her off. She never tries more than once in a night.

Sort of. Mom had loose poop and spent a lot of time away from baby so I spent a lot of time with him when not with her. I mixed up a batch of food minus beef so it's basically formula and a bit of cheese, cereal and vitamins to entice Aurora an be easier on her stomach (maybe added to much beef to fast). Since he was licking my fingers I offered the bowl and he took a little lick but that was all and he had more fun poking at the bowl with his claws.

Mom's milk is best he just seemed interested so I let him check it out and he only had a taste. He went back to licking my fingers after.

Aurora hasn't pooped since, a good thing, and regained her appetite. She stayed with baby last night, only coming to the wall to ask for food.

I put the tiny rubber ducky in there but don't think he played with it. Mom did push it to the front of the cave though.

Pua's snow day and baby stuff

First a few videos I haven't posted yet.

Sleepy Aurora tamandua with baby Feb 8

Mommy yawns
. I just noticed his baby bit does look pointy(manly) when he flips up and gives a glimpse. Had to use the original file and pause it at just the right split second to really see though. I plan to have a real look Sunday as he'll be a month old then.

It looks like he fell asleep with the nipple in his mouth in the first half but in the second half you can see his mouth move sucking some before he lets go. It's shaky as I'm holding the camera up over my head. I tried moving it to be braced on the wall but that looked like it might have disturbed them so I backed off.

A little halfhearted as he was being good with me but then mom growled at the container of food I brought so he growled and threatened. I just caught the end of it and not his full threat stance.

OMG the world's turning white and cold!

The power went out so my door was open to allow heat from the wood stove in. Pua decided to get up and take advantage.
