Week three and four…eyes opening…exploring their new world…trying out new tastes and smells and growing teeth.

It was at this point once they were starting to eat for themselves that we placed them with mum in a small run so that they could get a little bit of ‘wild’ experience.

By week six, at just over 100 grams the babies were ready to return to their home range with mum into a soft release area so that eventually she could walk them out and show them the skills they needed to survive the wild. Paula, Nigel and Oliver collected them and they are now supporting their return back to their home range.
