Patient Updates

Tanzanite was released after 100 days in our care.

You can see the list of all animals released at this release in the release record.

Tanzanite has been moved to a pre-release pool! He joins tiny pups Beryl, Topaz and Garnet, and we watched him (for hours) socialize with Beryl. They seem to be getting along...

Tanzanite now eats fish like a big boy on his own!
