Flo gives birth
Last night "Flo", our breeding vixen in the main fox enclosure, gave birth to her cubs. Despite spending a lot of her recent time in the barn she decided to have them in part of their outside earth. Time will tell whether they will be as crazy as their mum, or be much calmer and timid as fox cubs are supposed to be.
Meanwhile in our badger sett, "Humbug" is still nursing her cubs. I can now confirm she has had three this year. Above is a snap shot of them at about 2 and a half weeks.
You can still see our orphaned badger and fox cubs out and about after their respective keeper talks.
