Magnus has been very hungry this week; he has been waiting at the gate to be first in line for fish. On Thursday Tamara got a soaking from Magnus as he demanded that more fish be given to him.
Fatima is doing lots of lazing around this week, and is also going through a fasting phase.
Sheba is spending a lot of time on the side of the pool. She has also started to miss a feed, but makes up for it at the next one!
Lizzie, although blind, can be found looking at the space where the animal care team park the van for feeding times, looking very hungry with her tongue hanging out.
Anneka has been very naughty this week. When the animal care team have been cleaning the pool, she has been pretending to be asleep on her back, as the team go by she sneakily opens one eye, wakes up and tries to bite the animal care team. Anneka has also been pinning the pups in the convalescent pool and taking the fish out of their mouths, we are just waiting for the pups to fight back.
Snoopy has been doing lots of moaning this week (no surprise there!), but this week it has been changed slightly, as she has been sticking her head in the water and has been blowing bubbles while moaning.
Atlanta and Marlin have both been very good this week and been coming out on to the side of the pool to receive their thyroid treatment.
Ray and Magnus have been having words this week. Ray has been fussing around Magnus, Magnus not very happy at having his sleep interrupted, turned round and growled at Ray. This shocked Ray, who jumped back and fell in the pool; unfortunately the pool was being cleaned at the time and was empty.
Ray was unfazed by this experience, and picked him self up and waddled off.
The animal care team checked Ray over and he has sustained no injuries from the fall.
Both Flotsam and Jetsam have become stars once again this week and have appeared in Mammal’s UK magazine with Claire from the Animal Care Team.
Yulelog and Flipper have been fighting again this week, so their target training has been adapted so the animal care team can check for any wounds.
Rocky has been very hungry this week so the animal care team has increased his fish. Pepper has been having lots of fun playing with her feed ball.
Carus has been treated this week to conger eel and has also been given a feed ball to keep him active. Dips is coming on really well with her training and we can now take her out the gate and close the door behind her.
Both Thai and Bamboo have been very good and they’re training going very well. Which makes the animal care team suspicious about what they are up too and what they arc planning.
Bracken, Tuppence and Muffin - all of them are finally losing their summer bellies, this is because they have eaten all the grass and only have their hay left.
Elvis, Churchill, Monty, Priscilla. - Elvis has been playing in the fresh hay that was delivered, and ended up with baling twine around his horns, with a look on his face to say ‘What, it wasn’t me’.
