Patient Updates

Marlin Gaye was released after 92 days in our care.

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

Marlin has the most beautiful coat, and generally seems to have a sweet temperament. However, he is in the early stages of fish school and was much feistier with his fish today. A good sign for a wild animal! Looks like we're raising a good little predator here.
