Shuffle was rescued on 4th July 2018
Shuffle is a Common Seal pup! He was rescued on the 4th July 2018 from Snettisham Beach when he was roughly a week old. With budding teeth and no umbilicus, he was a tiny 8kgs!

Shuffle is currently on a diet of fish soup to get him the energy he needs to begin learning to eat whole fish. Unfortunate it is likely shuffle was abandoned due to human interference.

Whilst meaning well, Shuffle was put back into the water when originally found on the beach. Mothers leave their pups for hours at a time to go fishing and will then return. However, if they smell the scent of a human they will leave the pup behind.
