First time in France : a baby elephant shrew was born !
This Monday, August 12, 2019, a baby pointed the tip of his trunk. Not really born but “out of the ground” to be more precise : Baby elephant shrews spend the first 4 weeks of their lives well hidden in a hole dug by the parents and carefully covered with leaves. They never leave it. It is impossible to know that there was a birth.
It will be necessary to do quickly to see this baby in the enclosure of the parents! In a month, he will be separated to avoid fights!
