Patient Updates

David Hassealhoff was released after 101 days in our care.

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

David is back in a bigger pool, and this time he seems to be doing a better job. Let's hope he keeps his weight...

David did spend a short amount of time in a pre-release pool but is back in "out of quarantine" and needs to work on his fish school skills...

David eats his fish all on his own like a pro already!

David's in fish school now. So far, he's lacking a bit of initiative...

  1. Hello! I work up at camp on Anvil Island, and was the one in contact with you guys regarding this little guy!!! Not sure if the names on here are set in stone, but we did name him “Twinkie” while he was hanging around in our little bay!
