Patient Updates

Tango was released after 66 days in our care.

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

Tango has come a long way. He showed great appetite, mastered fish school rather quickly and is now in a training pool, where he's working on his food competition skills. He's also just a few kilograms away from his release weight...
