Patient Updates

Golden Monkey was released after 80 days in our care.

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

Golden Monkey is easy to spot with his nearly all-white fur coat. When we checked in on him today, he was having a long nap, with his head above the water, read to dip it in to cool down.

Golden Monkey is back in a big pool!

Golden Monkey doesn't seem to mind at all that she's been "downgraded" to a tub again after briefly spending some time in a larger pool. She'll figure out that competition thing eventually...

Golden Monkey is back in a tub in our "out of quarantine" area as she didn't do too well in a pool (yet).

Looks like Golden Monkey is finally figuring out fish school!
