Our dassie are doing great and the family has grown!

Our lady dassie “princess” was getting fat and we were thinking of putting her on a diet when we had the surprise one morning that she had given birth to 3 babies. It was the first time for Princess to have babies and she was very embarrassed not knowing what to do. We let nature and instinct kick in but unfortunately two babies died. She is now in a private enclosure and taking good care of her last baby, both looking very healthy. Soon they will join the whole Dassie family in their new enclosure renovated by Marina our Animal Assistant.

Thank you for your contribution to the care of our dassies!

Kinds Regard,
