Patient Updates

Crystal was released after 124 days in our care.

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

Crystal is still living the pre-release lifestyle. But not for much longer... she's pretty much ready to be released!

Crystal seems to really like the pre-release pool that is currently her home. She spends a lot of time in the water, is as curious as ever and still gets "hangry" every now and then!

Breaking news: Crystal is now eating on her own! (That doesn't mean she's any less "hangry" when her dinner is late though.)

Crystal's skills in fish school are improving! She's now eating fish, though she still needs some help. She's much more cooperative now!

Crystal still hasn’t learned how to eat fish. She's not the biggest fan of our staff and quite aggressive towards people (that's okay ─ we don't want her to like people), but it makes fish school a little challenging...

Crystal is a very feisty girl, not so cooperative for feeds, but she’s learning. She is also gaining weight.
