Guestbook for Otea

  1. Hi Otea and welcome to MMRC, a wonderful place where they will take the best care of you. Sending you lots of love, hope and healthy thoughts.

  2. Howdy Otea- You look like you are tuckered out there buddy. You have been in the care of MMRC for a couple months now so I bet you are feeling much better. It says you are in fish school so I hope you are paying attention to your teachers and are learning how to eat your fishes so you can grow even bigger and stronger. The next time I check on you they could of released you back to your home in the ocean. Take care and be well sweet seal pup!!
