Seal pup Sandy doing well in rehab
Aug/19/11 07:20 PM
Sandy is shown here in the light of early evening on the pebbled beach north of the Water Taxi landing. A seal’s fur looks very different when wet or dry (see dry photo in story below), often making identification difficult. For this reason we try to get detailed photos of spots and markings which enables us to track an animal if there are health concerns. In Sandy’s case, she had very defined markings on her left foreflipper and around the eyes, so we were easily able to identify her when she hauled out on a different beach.
PUPDATE 8/22/11 PAWS reports that Sandy is still doing well and taking whole fish.
