From 2018-2019 baby season... Pakko taco throwing a furious fit! (Jan 11, 2019)


Convincing the babies to drink from inside the feeding cage is not the easiest task. Here’s @hiptothehop95 talking Pakko into being a big boy, but he ain’t interested. 😂 The feeding cage is a crucial step in the foster mom process. Since the adoptive mothers are not lactating, the bottles are where the babies get their milk from for the first year or so of their lives. Once they’re in the troop we try to minimize human exposure which means no more hand feeding. This also means the bottles are exposed to the troop, so to avoid any pesky juveniles or adults getting at the bottles, the bottles are placed inside this small cage with openings just big enough for the babies to fit into. Once the babies get the hang of climbing in and out to drink then bottle life is great, but in these early Disneyland days the concept can be a bit frustrating for a hungry baby. #vervetforest #notpets #animalrehab #wildlifeconservation

It's amazing to be able to watch baby animals growing up :)

Meanwhile, counting down the days til a bearable daytime temperature comes around again...
