The February Life History files have been uploaded.
Here are the most important events:
- Van Helsing’s dominant female Egg was seen mating with Paprika’s Angel Shuffle (VVHM075) – who is her son! He must have been away for too long for her to recognise him? The Paprika group disintegrated, however, with all females absent for several months.
- There were several abortions (including Swift) or litters lost this month, and several groups show signs of TB, maybe all due to the bad foraging conditions during the drought. There has been some rain though, with meerkats gaining weight.
