A few days after Limbo arrived at the seal hospital, he started to learn how to eat fish for himself whilst on a course of antibiotics and de-wormers.

Update - 23rd September 2018 : Limbo has sadly passed away on 11th September 2018; 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.
