    Haven’t seem mum about for a couple of nights but the camera caught her going into one of the houses a couple of mornings ago so I hope she is hibernating, babies are still about every night. Will they be alright without mum.
    As my previous post, I checked the weight of one of them the other night and it was 650g I’ve sort of compared the two babies on the video and they are round about the same size, perhaps the other one I didn’t weigh is slightly smaller but it is only very slight.
    The fireworks have spooked one of them tonight, I haven’t seen the other one but the video may have captured them both in the feeding station. The babies are still sharing a house at the moment, not showing any interest in the new house looks like they prefer to share.

    Hi Jackietb

    Yes, don’t worry, Mother hogs usually seem to go off to hibernate before the youngsters and that one will be plenty big enough to look after itself. The youngsters might stay together for a while, but the other box might come in handy if one decides it’s had enough of sharing!
