Patient Updates

Megalodonna was released after 103 days in our care.

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

Megalodonna looks a bit shy in the largest pre-release pool, but she's made it this far! She'll soon be ready for release...

Megalodonna has made a big step towards successful rehab and has moved to a bigger pool where she is learning to compete for fish.

Megalodonna isn't exactly the most ferocious predator. Actually, she doesn't seem to like her prey at all. This is her examining a fish... that she doesn't want to touch.
