It's kind of interesting to see the shape of the kit, as it wasn't fully formed.
Actually, that one was probably fully formed - it already has hair. Soft tissue is the easiest to absorb so go first, what you are seeing left is the hard tissue (bones) and fur. Likely it was a later term reabsorption.

Yup, this one was a later term. As I posted earlier, mom gained weight and then started to lose it toward the end of the pregnancy. The kit is formed, but you can see in the second picture where the head and eye sockets are sunken in....no brain, no eyes.

Wow interesting, but I couldn't blow up the pics because it grossed me out too. Will have to do it later when I haven't eaten yet, so I get kind of used to it if I want to be a breeder one day...

Interesting...I've heard of animals "removing" the evidence. Thank you for posting the pictures. I'd never seen a mummified baby before.

How is the kit (which I'm assuming is still in the mom's stomach) being reabsorbed?

Believe it or not - I just had the same thing happen to me today. One very healthy 65g kit was born. About 4 hours later a mumified blob once born. The mom started to eat it when I notice what it was and took it away.

It's a kind of defense mechanism that some animals have. When a fetus is non-viable or something goes wrong in utero the body breaks down the fetus allowing the mother to essentially reabsorb the kit. The purpose is to save the mother from birthing a carcass that could attract predators.

I had that happen a few weeks ago with a kit, The huge sc I had born a few weeks ago. He was 80 grams and shortly after he was born his mom had a mumified kit that weighed 15 grams. It happens once in a while
