Thanks Lai & LW for keeping an eye on things. They are having a real good feed now, you can hear them all suckling, loads of gurgles

Here are few I got today.
Got this one before I left for work today.


Another color pic from before work.


Got this one on lunch break after the cam came back up, just the cubs.


This is when Salome returned. Bath time, you could hear her cleaning the cubs.


This last one was taken just now, they are wiggling around and eating again.


I love your other pics too. I'm really looking forward to when they first start to explore a little! This is going to be a fun cam to watch!

WOW Ronnie - great shots there, lovely to see all the different activities going on - and as you say it will be wonderful to watch them as they get bigger.



Taken just now - all quiet.

Great pictures there Ronnie and Lai cheers I have just had a look in and the cubs are at the back and they are fairly active, wriggling around each other and lifting up their heads, they are really cute to watch.

Will there be a cam outside as well ? It will be great to watch if there is.

So much for them to learn, and so much for us to learn from them.

I would hope there would be a cam outside otherwise itseems strange to follow them now and then nothing, so surely there has got to be one, fingers crossed anyway.

I think you are probably right Littlewid. I'll have a look at the Africam site tomorrow and see what it says.

Great photo Littlewid.

I couldn't find anything Littlewid. But their website isn't that clear or maybe I didn't look in the right place.

One for WS - he always gets the answer (no pressure WS Laughing )

Here you go Guys.

The house is designed to give her the sense of security she needs, and that of course is where we have placed our first camera to try and capture the birth and the beginning of our cub's story.

As always in nature there is a chance the Salome will decide to give birth outside instead of inside the Maternity House. So we will just have to wait and see how the story unfolds. If she does give birth inside the house the cubs will remain in the structure for about a month, before venturing outside for the first time. We hope to have additional cameras in place by then to capture the cub's first adventure into the great outdoors.

Anything else ?

WS

Thanks WS - I knew we could rely on you to find the info. That's lovely to know that we'll be able to follow them as they get older.
