These hatchlings are very active and growing up quickly. They are all diving for fish and lobster (their favourite). If they are not eating they spend their day playing or sleeping!

Mushu is very active, moving around the basket and keeping himself distracted.
Olaf is very active, swimming around his basket and sharing some time with Mushu.
Caroline is an active hatchling that keeps swimming around the basket, being very curious and exploring her surroundings.
Leonardo is very active with his siblings.
