Ntombi, our tame mongoose, had babies on Saturday night the 17th of January in my bed. She gave birth to an incredible 9 babies. The average litter size is 2-4. It seemed like this was quite a shock to her system and we decided to supplement the feeding by using a syringe. They are going strong for the moment and the only ones’ suffering is Lize, Ntombi and I who are struggling to get enough sleep. I will put some photos of the proud mother and her babies on the blog as soon as I get a chance.
All the best.
