Patient Updates

Bubblegum was released after 56 days in our care.

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

Bubblegum was a naughty girl and kept stealing fish from Blue Moon. They had to be separated to give Blue Moon a chance to learn how to eat fish on her own. Bubblegum has been moved to a small pre-release pool.

These two are fun to watch. They're still inseparable, but they've both gained weight and left quarantine. Bubblegum is already eating fish on her own, but Blue Moon is a bit behind and hasn't quite figured that out...

Bubblegum and Blue Moon are still inseparable!
