Patient Updates

Cute Seal was released after 81 days in our care.

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

Cute Seal is now in a pool with a new friend, Lisa. They get along great and Cute Seal loves to peek out the window in his pool and watch everyone work.

Cute Seal can almost always be found hauled out in the sun in his favourite banana pose. If he isn’t on a haul out he is probably peeking out the window at the bottom of his pool.

Cute Seal is almost ready for a pool! A recent fish school graduate and slowly getting ready for the real world (ocean).

Cute Seal is eating on his own ─ which is great as he's been very displeased with his feeding experience in fish school.

Cute Seal is exactly as his name describes. Although he can be feisty at times he does great with his formula feeds and will soon be weaned onto fish!
