Today, everyone, I got to watch a mouse give birth. I just happened to come downstairs right as this pregnant female started squeezing out her first pup. I set the cage down on the edge of the cage-holder-shelf and watched it all through the clear plastic bottom of the cage (the mice are given bedding, but in this particuar area, luckily, the mice had pushed it aside). It was quite fascinating; I'm not sure if everyone finds this sort of thing as fascinating as I do, but I hope so, because damn if birth isn't one of the weirdest, most amazing things that mammals do.

Herein lies mousey-birth details! )

In other news, circus classes start tomorrow!
