Patient Updates

Portia de Rossea was released after 52 days in our care.

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

Well, she's still in the early stages of fish school and not eating fish on her own yet, but we're sure she'll get there eventually.

Portia is one of the seals that love to swim underwater when their tubs are being filled. She'll enjoy the big pools!
