Aurora had her baby

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

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.

Hyzzie is whining in the background afraid something is wrong. She thinks she's house nurse.

She peeked out of the washer when she heard baby cry. She got up later and didn't want to play or have treats and sat there sniffing and listening. She did eat later though.

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.

She ate a lot before and after. Making a baby builds up an appetite.
