Patient Updates

Blue Moon was released after 56 days in our care.

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

Blue Moon has finally mastered fish school and is eating fish on his own. He has joined Bubblegum once more in the Cali pre-release pool.

Blue Moon and Bubblegum have been separated as Blue Moon was a little behind in fish school (and Bubblegum kept stealing from her). That said, Blue Moon is now also eating on her own!

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...

Blue Moon and Bubblegum are still inseparable!
