Monk Seal Update – 3 week old pup

November 27th, 2008 by Coconut Coasters | Tags: | Posted in Monk Seals and Green Sea Turtles |

Just a quick update to let you know the pup we wrote about recently is doing great. The baby is three weeks old now and that means we all have much to be thankful for since it has made it through this critical early time. The pup is swimming now and is very playful. This picture (provided by the HMS conservation Hui) was taken as it was playfully biting its mothers front flipper while she rested. Taking care of a baby is exhausting and this mother is a good one! She is very attentive and is teaching her pup well.
