As Tamara and Rachael left, Little Ed did pop up to the surface to say one last “Good Bye” to the people who had taken care of him over the last 10 months.
Now the Animal Care Team has only 2 pups to look after in the hospital, training can begin again with all our residents. Flipper and Yulelog were first to get started with the new year of training. Both are doing well, but unfortunately Yulelog’s refuses to open his mouth when we ask him to.
Rocky is very hungry at the moment, but doing ok. His new pool is slowly taking shape, and with the nice weather, should be ready on time. You can see how far we are along in the Sea Lion lagoon by clicking on this link.
Carus had some company this week, as the Animal Care Team drained and gave his pool a really good clean. Carus was his usual helpful self and kept lying where the Animal Care Team needed to clean, even spraying him with the hose was not enough to make him move his bottom. Carus has been also taking an interest in the builders that are doing Rocky’s pool, probably thinking Mmm lunch!!
Mika and Chaff, our Fur Seals, have been busy this week, making lots of noises, playing fetch with the rubber ring, and taking the hose pipe and playing with it, which takes cleaning a lot longer for the Animal Care Team.
Something is a foot at Otter Creek as the Animal Care Team came in one morning to find the water in their pool had disappeared overnight… As the pool was empty the Animal Care Team decided to de-leaf it, which Thai and Bamboo thoroughly enjoyed. The Otters have also been visited by some toads, and the Otters have entertained their guests by showing them around their holt.
