Patient Updates

Creamsicle was released after 63 days in our care.

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

Creamsicle is as curious as ever, and she's been moved to a pre-release pool, where she can enjoy people watching all day long. She also likes to sleep a lot (she barely moved from her haul-out spot in between feeds when we took the latest series of pictures over several hours) ─ and she's gained a lot of weight since being moved to a pool.

Creamsicle is curious about everything, always trying to look over and out of her tub. She's so busy looking around in fact that she's not interested in fish. (Megan)
