Why not just keep feeding the juveniles in their natural environment. Catching them must cause stress, sometimes I worry that handling them can’t do them any good. So active, on camera and eating…they are wild animals after all. Just a thought. I too have taken a hh to a rescue centre and they have so many handed in. Mine was a juvenile, had parasites and didn’t survive.
