Patient Updates

Biggs was released after 65 days in our care.

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

Biggs is exactly as his name describes..BIG! He is nearing release and eating lots of fish.

Biggs is sure getting big! Him and his pool mate Kitchi are the best of friends and doing great competing for fish.

Biggs is gaining weight and we are slowly increasing the amount of milk formula.
