Patient Updates

Fennec Fox was released after 63 days in our care.

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

Fennect is looking great in her pre-release pool.

Fennec is being described as an 'unremarkable' seal. That's actually very nice as so many seals have many issues we need to address. Fennec has no wounds, she is a relatively easy to feed, she has no ‘attitude’, and is generally nice to work with. She needs to gain some weight still and is learning to eat fish in fish school right now.
