next visit to Hunstanton SEA LIFE Sanctuary.
Rescued Seal Pups
Superman (photo below) is still one of the fastest learners of the group. She is now completely able to feed herself! She still has seal pox, but she is quite active, very happy, and has a great appetite.
Superman
Dangermouse, Spiderman and Robin have learnt to feed themselves and have put on lots of weight! This means that they don´t have to rely on the Animal Care Team to hand feed them any more, so they can just throw the fish in the pool for them!

All three were moved to the outside resident pool in mid August, where they will learn to socialise with the adult seals. It will be good for them to get used to swimming in the deeper water and being outside in the elements too. The others will soon learn to copy them and won´t be far behind!   Dangermouse (photo below) making friends with the adult seals.
Dangermouse
Wonderwoman, Batman (photo below) and Mystique are still learning to eat the fish underwater - they like to chew their fish thoroughly but are still learning how to swallow them properly (and not sideways!).

If You Discover a Seal Pup in the Wild!
The animal care team is on call around the clock to race to the rescue of seal pups in trouble anywhere around the coast. Back at the Sanctuary, pups receive expert veterinary care and are gradually weaned from a liquid diet to whole fish in the purpose built hospital. Then it´s to the outdoor pools to gain weight and build strength and stamina ready to resume life in the wild.
If you should discover a seal pup that seems to be in distress, or is alone, what you do next could mean the difference between life and death for the animal.

DO keep your distance;
DON´T attempt to handle the pup;
DON´T attempt to put the pup in the sea;
DON´T ignore the situation;
DO tell the appropriate organisation.
