Ring-tailed matriarch, Ansell, gave birth to two healthy babies on 24 May. Just two weeks later the babies are already climbing around on mom and investigating their surroundings.
Ansell and the babies are living in the forest along with father Yuengling, and Ansell’s twins from last year, Rogue and Allagash. Rogue and Allagash are becoming very helpful big sisters. They are often seen grooming the babies and cuddling with Ansell.
One baby was even seen clinging to Rogue while she climbed a tree! Ansell, however, was quick to reclaim her wayward infant….Here are some pictures of the family group taken by LCF’s animal husbandry intern (and great photographer!) Caitlin Kenney.
