Albert (the new turtle from Kuda Huraa) was relocated to the enclosure from 19-29 November. Following a day of observation back at our Centre, we took Albert along with Frisbee out to the enclosure. Unfortunately, they became aggressive so we immediately returned Frisbee back to the Centre.
Albert continues to be observed and fed each day, and is healthy and active in his enclosure. We hope to expand the shading in the coming days, and our new materials have arrived (shading fabric, PVC pipes and ropes).
The recent bloom of algae and the long-tailed sea hare (Stylocheilus longicauda) which we observed during October has passed, and we haven’t spotted any sea hares recently. We document all activities and observations of the enclosure, and periodically update our sponsors (Mrs Banks and the Olsen Animal Trust) with a detailed report.
