Releases are always so bittersweet. Five more of the juveniles were released out in to the wild tonight. Here you can see two of them under the brush near a ponding basin. Three of their siblings were released as well, one of the females were very fiesty and took off very quickly. These two hung around for a while though, not exactly sure what to do before scampering off towards the water.
I now have only eight more juvenils that are not quite old enough for release in their outdoor enclosures, one adult female that will be released soon, the hit by car adult female that is doing much better, and this little baby female who is growing very quickly! She is such a character too. When she gets too hot in her fleece pouch she will crawl out of it and lay half way out from under the towel that covers her pouch. She always stays tucked in part way though, like having little covers pulled up and over her. She made me smile when I found her sleeping like this, little hand almost covering her eye as if to say "Mom, turn off the lights, it's bright outside!"
