Bradley eats fish on his own now, but his technique still needs a bit of work.

Bradley is still in fish school and will hopefully soon make it to the next step, a training pool. For now, though, he seems to be very comfortable...

Bradley is described as a "rolly" seal, meaning that he likes to roll on his back when being fed his milk matrix. Practicum students and volunteers aren't too impressed when he does that. It makes every feed quite the challenge!

Guestbook for Bradley Grouper

  1. I saw Bradley this past Monday: Bradley was without doubt the absolute showboat seal . He was at his rolly best showing off his lithe physique with one flipper coyly covering his eyes as he showed off his ‘Bradliness’…… gorgeous (swoon…..)
