OUR FIRST FEMALE IS UP! We haven't been able to get a photograph of her, as she's been hiding in tall grass, but RSRAB finally came up late in the day yesterday, and was up again today. RSRAB stands for Racing Stripes Ring Around the Belly. This means her unique marking is a racing stripe on each side of her flank, and a ring that encircles her torso. We'll post a photo as soon as we're able to get one!
No additional females popped up today, but we're confident many will be coming aboveground in the coming days. And shortly thereafter: the mating season!
