Patient Updates

Opal was released after 49 days in our care.

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

Opal is sooo pretty ─ and she's now in the largest pre-release pool until she has gained enough weight to be released.

Opal's now adulting in the pre-release pool. She's gained quite a lot of weight judging from this picture alone.

Opal is hilarious. She loves her swims. She splashes everything and everyone around her!

Opal still doesn’t understand that fish are yummy, so she’s more interested in the fact that she gets a bath. She draws you in with her big beautiful eyes but she is quite sassy if you get too close! But look at those eyes...
