The squirrels are growing fast!

The squirrels are in one big group of 12 now and in a bigger cage. They have all kinds of hammocks and boxes in their cage but they all have to sleep in one! The hammock on the left....

 ....I can't believe all 12 fit in there....along with all the shredded newspaper they drag up in there!
 Then they hear mom coming with food! Yayyyyyy...and everyone is up and about.
 Cute little Spot is usually the first to come running.
 Walnut isn't far behind.
 After their formula everyone gets a treat....yummy nuts to exercise their growing teeth on! Some are not patient enough to wait for their own and try to steal someone elses.
 Most have learned to grab it and run to a private corner to avoid illegal seizures, LOL!

 Hey....where's mine!
 Once everyone has a nut, they settle in somewhere to hide and eat the treasured treats.
They all range from 150 to 300 grams now and are growing like weeds. Even little Acorn has finally overcome the issues he had and is gaining ground on the rest. Now it's just a matter of time before they are weaned and moving to a large outdoor release pen.
