Active baby tamandua

He's crawling all over and around her like a jungle gym and poor mom just wants to sleep. At one point mom tries to hold him still.

2 weeks old - day 14

Aurora's answer to this was to curl up with her head tucked neatly under her so he couldn't disturb her. He gave up and settled in. Sorry it focused on her butt instead of him. This shot also makes him look naked but he has fur.

Here comes baby

Mom, I'd like a visit to the milk bar please

He kept poking at her till she lifted up for him.

He was a bit more playful before I started and did some sort of small leap onto mom, once filming looks like he decided he needed a snack instead.


Momma Aurora is tired.

It finally occurred to me to get the heat lamp to use as a spotlight but then they both were resting.


When I slid the cardboard down to peek at baby he rose up and growled ready to fight. He calmed and let me touch him though as he's used to me. Putting it back he growled and was ready to fight at the noise too. Who knew babies could be so FIERCE! lol. Still not 100% visually but on attitude alone, he's just gotta be a boy. He's ready to take on the world.


Momma has me well trained. After baby is done nursing she wants to eat and room temp food wont do. She comes to the closet wall and cries till I wake and give her fresh food.
