Patient Updates

Blondie Ambition was released after 79 days in our care.

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

What an improvement! We watched Blondie eat his first fish on his own! He's a big boy now, and if he keeps this up, we'll probably see him in a pre-release pool very soon.

Vet tech Bree tells us about Blondie: "He is only able to eat small fish, and he is very picky about how much he is willing to eat. He’ll eat a couple fish and then turn his nose up. He was better yesterday, and ate more willingly, but he’s not the best kid in fish school."
