Patient Updates

Eye Candy was released after 73 days in our care.

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

Eye Candy has progressed through fish school at an amazing rate and is now eating on her own in Rockfish with Bertha and Crème de la Crème, where she will learn to socialize and compete for fish in a larger space.

Eye Candy is a lively animal who’s competing well in Orca! She’s followed her initial pool-mates Bertha and Crème de la Crème into the final pre-release pool.
