It’s day 24 and the cubs are all active and growing. Today, we could see that at least two of the cubs had their eyes opened. About 99 percent of our viewing of the babies is done through the infrared camera mounted inside the nest box. On a rare occassion, one or more of them will lay near the nest door and we can get a look at them. It’s a special treat when one of them gets brave enough to venture out of the nest box into the larger behind-the-scenes area. This usually doesn’t last long, though. The cubs quickly retreat to the security of the nest or mother Toma comes and carries them back inside.
