    These guys are getting HUGE! Not too long before their eyes will be open.

    This is probably the warmest place in the world right now! It's amazing that these little guys can put off that much body heat!

    This guy just would not cooperate with being held, so here he is anyway.

    Just to show off those ears.

    I started a second thread because I was too lazy to find the first one.

    it's amazing how much they've grown in 6 days! Their eyes should be opening up in the next 4-5 days; you can see that they are already starting to look "squinty"

    The really amazing part is the amount of body heat these guys put off. I mean, you can hold your hand 3 inches above the nest and feel the heat.
