Update - 31st December 2012 : This photo of Travis was taken on 27th December 2012. He is currently in nursery pool 1 with Bob Marley. Along with a few of the other pups, Travis does like to make lots of noise. Because he wanted to be louder than the rest, he discovered that if he sticks his head into the cave of nursery pool 1 whilst making a noise, it amplifies the sound.
