Siebenschläfer. Die Mutter beleckt die Jungen und stellt sich zum Säugen über sie. Beim Umquartieren in eine andere Baumhöhle trägt das Weibchen die Jungen einzeln am Rückenfell. Die neue Nisthöhle wird mit Eichenlaub ausgepolstert. Ein Jungtier beißt eine grüne Eichel ab, ein anderes frißt von einer Pflaume.
Female Fat Dormouse (Glis glis) with its young in a nesting hole. The mother licks the anal-region and the skin of her young. She is standing over her young while they are suckling. When she has laid down, the young start licking her salvia. An older young tries to climb up the wall of the tree-hole. The dislodging of the young by the female is demonstrated. With her mouth the mother grasps her young at the skin of its back and carries it to the entrance of the hole. She jumps on a bough and runs into another tree-hole. This new nesting hole is stuffed with fresh oak leaves. An adult Fat Dormouse is looking for food: it looses a brown acron out of its cup with its fore paws and a young one bites a green acron off its petiole. The Fat Dormouse licks a little plum and eats bits of this fruit.
