Thread: Pregnant vixen

  1. #1

    Pregnant vixen

    Somethings never cease to amaze me with the animal world and tonight I was yet again shown how things never run by the text book.

    Upon picking up a vixen I had just shot it became apparent that she was fatter than normal and a feel of her belly showed what felt like developing foetus.
    And upon opening her up I found 3 well developed foetus probabaly well over two weeks into growing if not more.
    I guess that explains the varied ages of cubs that were around this year.

    Thats amazing , never seen or heard of matings this early. It would mean that the cubs would have been born about Mid December .

    De Ja Vue or what, we shot a vixen last Tues and we both thought it looked pregnant but we decided it couldn't be as it was too early in the year.

    Thanks. I was thinking of some I could download to my phone though. I have a couple, but wanted to change them as their effectiveness seems to drop off after a while.
