Oprah Finfrey was released after 70 days in our care.

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

Oprah has come such a long way! She looks amazing, and she's way on track for a successful release in the near future.

Oprah seems very curious these days... most likely on the lookout for whoever is delivering her lunch. But it's a good sign ─ she continues to gain weight.

Oprah is being weaned! She's beginning to eat fish on her own now... that means an upgrade to a larger pool is in her future!

Oprah looks to be healthy and is progressing well. She's also gaining weight.
