When the female is ready to give birth, she goes into hiding so that the male will not kill the young. For 3 days she remains hidden, suckling & protecting her tiny offspring. The youngsters are weaned after 6 weeks & can feed themselves by 8 weeks. At 4 months they are fully grown. In captivity, when they are fed regularly all year round, bush babies breed constantly throughout the year.

Duke was bought into Khulula Wild Care just a few hours old. It was thought that he had been abandoned by his mum. The volunteers lovingly cared for him until the centre sadly lost him to tick bite fever. While his time on Earth was cut short, the volunteers had given him all their love and care knowing that for his last few weeks he was extremely happy. R.I.P Duke.

Volunteers often look after bush babies while at Khulula Wild Care. A nocturnal animal, as many as twenty may crowd together to sleep in an enclosed space like a hollow tree trunk. At dusk they wake & split into family groups & go searching for food.

Given the current conservation status of both the black and white rhino populations, each and every animal is of high importance. Bottle feeding is the preferable method used for hand rearing these animals.
