I was hunting for fossils, trilobites to be exact, the other day, and look who I happened to come across! This lovely little toad was watching me the whole time and almost completely camouflaged. He was King of the Quarry, no contest! Now, we just need the WTS reptile & amphibian expert, Ingrid, to tell us what species it is. Ingrid??
Oh! Who is in the tree? See if you can guess! I can't even believe how grown up they are. They are ~10 weeks today. I have moved them into a bigger cage located outside. 3-4 more weeks until they are released. I also made them a nice comfy nestbox which they seem very happy in! Pictures to come. I'm glad that they are more self-sufficient now, though they are still being nursed a couple of times a day, as I just got a nest full of 5 orphan 4 day old cottontails which I foresee taking up a lot of my time! Also, tiny bunny has not been well, so there are feedings and fluid administration around the clock...in fact I have to be up in just a few hours, so I better wrap this up!
Look! They can even hang upside down and munch on things!...Even rocks...???! Actually, I noticed that they do like to nibble on rocks and dirt, so perhaps they get certain minerals this way.
