I have a pair of rubbers I estimate to be born in 2003.

Last year they only ate for 3 weeks in April, so this year I decided to make better observations.

Here is what I have so far-

Went into brumation 12/1/2006 and kept at 38-40F.

Male-

Out of brumation 2/22/2007
Weight on 2/22/2007= 34g

First meal was taken 3/24/07 (1 f/t pink rat "only thing they touch"
Weight on 3/25/07= 37g

Second meal 3/29/2001 (2 f/t pink rats)
Weight on 3/29/07 = 44g

Female

Out of brumation 3/11/07
Weight on 3/11/07= 44g

First meal was taken 3/24/07 (1 f/t pink rat)
Weight on 3/25/2007= 47g

Second meal 3/29/2001 (2 f/t pink rat)
Weight on 3/29/07 = 58g



I am hoping they eat for more than 3 weeks this year….we will see!
