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

Scarlet in the largest pre-release pool. Looks like she's going to leave us soon...

Scarlet's seems to have gotten used to pre-release pool life. She's now in one of the largest pre-release pools and appeared to be enjoying her haul-out spot in the sun when we checked in on her.

Scarlet's grown quite a bit, and she's put on a lot of weight over the last few weeks.

Scarlett will still need a little time to figure out this fish eating thing, but she's getting there.

Scarlett is progressing normally and gaining weight.
