critter update

unfortunately that baby chinchilla died and there was another premature dead chinchilla in the cage but there is also a healthy but smaller baby chinchilla. Two of the chinchillas have used nipples and milk in their system and both have been nursing this baby so she will likely do well. Cannot figure out what happened though being that we have three very different babies from two mothers and two are dead. The degu babies are all healthy including the runt but someone is missing of the newest two litters (all the same size except the runt). Still have 11 (two grey) of the older ones but the smaller ones count as 15 (3 grey) instead of 7+9=16. Two degus seem pregnant but not as much as the new mother degus were so far.
