Our New Resident Otter
Brutus, our six year old otter, has spent the past three years living with his brothers, Oscar and Phil, in the otter enclosure, during the past few months, their personalises have changed as play fights were getting nasty, and the gentler Brutus was getting the brunt of it.

So Oscar and Phil have been moved to
Scarborough SEA LIFE Sanctuary, and it was decided that Brutus should meet his first lady friend in the name of Summer. It was love at first sight for Summer and Brutus. Hopefully by Christmas there will be patter of tiny feet.

Our new Octopus arrived on 19th August, but what shall we call it?
Pup Call-out
Doris, Flash and Athena checked on a young seal pup spotted on the beach at Old Hunstanton on 19th August 2011 by holidaymakers.
After Doris checked the pup, she noticed that it´s mum was off-shore.
We encouraged the crowd which was increasing in size to step back from the pup and observe with us to see what it would do, after a few minutes it slowly
swam off.

Penguins
Our penguins are still going through their moult, but Dimi, Beau and Harvey have completely finished now, the moult only happens once a year.

Instead of losing a feather at a time like most birds do, penguins lose all of their feathers over a few weeks and they look very very untidy while they do this. In fact they look quite ill and unkept during this time.

However, after a few weeks all their new feathers will grow back and they will have lovely clean and coated in shiny new feathers. Photo above is Jess.
