Thanks everybody. :D My mom instincts are starting to kick in, and the babies are looking cuter than ever.

I told youtube to brighten the video and they basically just darkened some spots. :| Gotta undo that.

Thought I commented on Youtube but..

Can't believe you were able to get your camera in time!! It is so cool that you got video of her releasing them. :) Thank you for being so awesome about posting everything as it happens. It's going to be a huge help for me and for anyone else who is going to try to raise them. I'm so glad it's you that I get to learn from. :D

This is so exciting! I am about to watch the videos, AMAZING pictures! They really should be in a text book! I think their little eyes are just so adorable. They already have the hermit googly eyes! I can't wait to see how everything goes, both the hermit mom and scientist in me is beyond excited! If this is successful, you should write a paper! :crabbigsmile: They are so very tiny
