Patient Updates

Platypus was released after 52 days in our care.

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

Platypus has gained quite a lot of weight! He's left quarantine and should be in a pre-release pool soon.

Not much to say about Platypus since he's a brand-new patient ─ but he's a talker! Very vocal!
