Miss M, resorted was supposed to mean resorbed.

The Android pad I used to write the comment is always "correcting" what I write with the wrong words, even "correcting" common words like resorbed.

So my rabbit resorbs her kits somewhere near the beginning of her third trimester, around 20 -24 days.

I think the word you wanted was "reabsorb" or "reabsorbing", wpcaernarfon.

Oh, right! If I hadn't been so tired, I probably would have picked up on that. :roll:

"Resorb" is actually a correct American (USA) English word with the same definition:

resorb
Syllabification: re·sorb
Pronunciation: /rēˈsôrb/ /-ˈzôrb/
Definition of resorb in English:

verb
[with object] technical

1Absorb (something) again: the ability to resorb valuable solutes from the urine

1.1 Physiology Remove (cells, or a tissue or structure) by gradual breakdown into its component materials and dispersal in the circulation: bone tissue will be resorbed

Interesting! You are perfectly correct, Miss M. I have never come across the word "resorb" but after reading your post I googled it. According to dictionary.com its use goes back to the 1600's! It's odd that the American English spell-check flags it as an error since it is apparently used on both sides of the Atlantic.

My apologies, wpcaernarfon. :oops:

Same here, and I was also going to offer a correction... fortunately, I have a dictionary handy right here on my desk and looked it up first. :wr_special:

It's not often that I or MaggieJ see an unfamiliar word, so thanks for teaching us a new one Wpcaernarfon! :P

The the photos you Pieter are interesting. I read about this about 2 weeks ago ... I learnt something new about rabbit physiology. They font have one uterus like a human, they gave two horns to their uterus and each can carry a litter - usually not successfully. So the 5 that lived are quite unique. It can also be fatal for mummy bunny too. Each horn can carry a litter from a different male. I've never seen these sorts of pics before ... The kit in its sac is quite amazing really. Al the best with the kits and the next litter.

NKALA, the two horned uterus is real, but the fact that they are for carrying separate litters is a myth.

I've autopsied several does now, at varying stages of pregnancy. I always find embryos carried in both horns in every pregnancy.
Imagine the horns being filled with kits, lined up on both sides of a rabbit's abdomen instead of all those babies in a cluster in the middle, or all the kits being carried on one side. That is what the two horns are for.

From my understanding, a doe can have embryos fertilized by more than one buck (like a cat), but, they would not be carried separately.
