Patient Updates

Kitchi was released after 64 days in our care.

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

Kitchi is still in a pool with his BFF Biggs, they love to chase each other around their pool and compete during feeding time. On a warm day you can almost always find them sprawled out next to each other on a haul out in the sun.

Kitchi is doing great competing for fish with her friend Biggs and will soon be moved to a pre release pool!

Kitchi has made the jump into the big boy pool. He's made good progress and is looking very handsome!

Kitchi will start fish school in the next few days

Kitchi seems to be making good progress. He looks healthy, but is being treated with antibiotics for an infection, just in case.
