Default First Squirrel of the year :)

I got my first baby squirrel of 2009 yesterday. He is a fox squirrel and weighs 170 grams. He is about 6 weeks old and seems pretty healthy. He was cold, dehydrated, and lethargic when he came in, but they warmed him up and sub Qd him at the center before I took him home. He is drinking his formula like a champ. Here are a few pictures of the little cutie:

Here are some new pictures of the little guy. Still no name. My family suggessted Happy because everyone is happy I finally got something in and will stop talking about when I think the first baby squirrel of the year is going to come in. He is a Happy little guy too. I am still thinking about it though.




Peeking his little head out from under the blanket

Here are a couple videos of him drinking his formula. He is a really good eater . You can hear him sucking and slurping it down in the first video.

Happy is adorable! What is there to think? That name first perfectly!

I somewhere explained how to display youtube movies here..it's pretty simple.

Quote:
[ youtube ] insert last part of video url here, the part after the watch?v=/this number [ /youtube ]

Like when the url is like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5ekZkNdcXZU
you only insert the 5ekZkNdcXZU in between the youtube tags.

I just watched the movies, he sure is sucking it up hehehe, enjoying it too!

Half of mine are already weaned, totally refuse formula, but don't crack nuts open yet. However, they are eating enough solids, are fat and trying to attack me when I feed the others. I'm so proud of them, hehehe.

Happy is growing up . He is starting to munch on apples, cheerios, and walnuts, as well as watermelon. He is up to 212 grams today . Here are some pictures of him from a couple days ago:

Adorable pictures!

I like to have my squirrels, once they open their eyes, in a cage where they can climb around. It's amazing how early they start .

Yeah, I really should get him into a bigger cage where he can climb. I usually am not too good about that. I keep them in 10 gallon tanks until their eyes open and they go off milk, then I put them in a 30 gallon tank while they wait to head outside (usually there is something in the cage that needs to be released first). Happy is still on heat . I am probably babying him too much, but it goes down to 58 in the basement at night and he doesn't have any buddies to cuddle with and he loves to snuggle up in the blankets and get all warm.
