Momma opossum is doing great and healing well from having eye surgery last week

Momma opossum is doing great and healing well from having eye surgery last week. She certainly has her hands full with 12 healthy babies.

Even while she is recovering, she still cares for her babies before herself. She is a terrific mom.

It is normal for Mama Rabbit to leave her babies by themselves

If you come across a bunny nest, it is important to leave it undisturbed as mom is easily stressed.
Babies usually just stay in the nest for 3 weeks at which time they leave the nest and no longer need their mom’s care. At this time, they are usually about 4 inches long and can hide in the grass.
