In their fifth video, baby raccoons Gowron, Martok, B’Etor and Lursa first encounter solid food (moistened puppy chow with a bit of formula). They are around 7 weeks of age in this video. As you can see, they don’t express a lot of interest in the food while they are out in the room exploring. Shortly after placing them back in their cage with the dish of food, however, it was devoured and the dish somehow found itself flung across the cage floor. Over the next few feedings, I always saw Martok (the smaller, rather lean- faced male who first approached the dish in the video) in the food dish eating, while the others expressed varying degrees of disinterest. By their third feeding, he was accompanied by Lursa (the big female) in the food dish, and finally all four were eating together as of June 1st.
