|National Seal Sanctuary|
|3rd August 2009|
|With nursery pool 1 occupied with Myrtle, Snoopy has taken up residents in nursery pool 2. |
All the other seals are a little off their food at the moment but this is normal during the summer. With the pups gone, the Animal Care Team can start putting enrichment toys in this pool. Marlin is loving the milk crate with the balls in the middle, and he likes to push this around the pool.
Luna and Sija are doing well with their training with the Animal Care team and look forward to their first feed at 10.30am before any of the other residents, |
it makes them feel very important.
Sahara is getting bigger everyday and is still only three years old. |
Sahara has also been a little under the weather over the last few weeks, but a course of antibiotics seems to have made him feel better.
Andy and Chaff are really enjoying the extra feed by the kids visiting the Sanctuary. |
Training is also going well and even Andy is doing all he is asked of by the Team.
Yulelog (photo below) has also been off his food which is a little unusual for him. With Logs off his food, we could not give him the antibiotics he needed to feel better in his fish, so we had to dart him. |
This was successful and Yulelog is now feeling a lot better. Flipper is feeding well with no other problems.
With the amount of rain Cornwall has had over the last few weeks, Starsky and Hutch have been a little sad, but the weather is set to brighten up over the next few days. |
The Animal Care Team have also had to put these little guys on a diet, as they are looking a little chubby.
|All three boys have their good days and bad days with their training. We have even had to station a member of the team at the other side of the enclosure so the other members of the team can get out safely. Diego is still barking hoping he will get fed quicker. André is starting to sound more like a Californian sea lion and less like a squeaky door.|
