Alohamora was rescued on 5th February 2018
Alohamora, female grey seal pup, was rescued on 5th February 2018 from Holme beach near Old Hunstanton. She is estimated at about 12 weeks old and came in weighing at 18kgs.

This would usually be a great example of a healthily progressing seal if it weren´t for her swollen bottom jaw, which has revealed an underlying infection.

Update - 12th May 2018 : Alohamora has sadly passed away; it is always very sad when one of the rescued pups dies but sometimes these little ones just don´t have enough antibodies and strength in them to pull through, despite the best efforts of all the staff at Hunstanton SEA LIFE.
