Patient Updates

Floyd was released after 65 days in our care.

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

Floyd may be in our largest pool but he is always the easiest to spot, he has more freckles and speckles of any seal on site!

You can’t miss Floyd! He has more freckles than any seal on site and is always front and center waiting for fish at meal time.

Floyd seems to be enjoying his big-pool status and is always staying close enough to the pool to dip his nose in. We don't blame him!

Floyd is being housed in the comfort tent where we can make him most comfortable. He is gaining weight and we are slowly increasing the amount of formula he is getting each day.
