n d w n e a r B I was just born. I can’t see or hear but I can smell.

I can smell my brother and sister close by.

We have downy fur to keep us warm. We sleep most of the time.

This is me.

g g u l i ng u p n S I am two weeks old now. My eyes are open and I can see.

This is my mother. She watches over me while I explore. Where are my brothers and sisters?

I am very sleepy after my dinner. I snuggle with my sister for a nap.

Here they are! It is time for Mom to feed us her warm milk.

e d i s w t o e r l u h d o T I am one month old. I am growing bigger every day.

I explore the world outside our den. It looks exciting!

g r y cubs n u H Now I am six weeks old. My paws and claws are getting bigger.

I am looking for something good to eat.

Oh, no! This empty eggshell is stuck on my nose.

I hope Mom comes back soon. I am very hungry.

Ouch! That hurts. My brother’s teeth are sharp. Here he is! I creep up on him quietly and jump.

Chasing tails Now I am ten weeks old. My tail is growing long and bushy.

I love running through the woods with the other cubs.

Then I curl up to sleep in the warm sunshine with my tail tucked around me.

Fine red coats I am twelve weeks old. My coat is red and shiny. My legs are strong.

I find my own food now. I am a good hunter.
