An Update On Albino Dolphin “Angel,” From Taiji Whale Museum
With translation help from Google Translate and my bilingual friend Atsuko Horiguchi, here’s what TWM reports:
–She was hesitant about eating when she first arrived from the transport (which was no doubt very stressful), but TWM is managing to hand feed her now.
–TWM is currently feeding her 7 kilograms of fish a day, over multiple feedings.
–Recently, Angel appears to be interacting more with the other dolphin(s).
–There were no major problems indicated in her blood test, and bit by bit she is swimming a little more actively, which leads the blog author to theorize that she is starting to get used to her “new environment.”
–TWM is still holding its breath regarding Angel, and will continue to keep a close eye on her.
The rest of the world will keep tracking her, too. In the meantime, if you haven’t seen it, over at The Dodo I broke down the revenue generated by the capture and sale of dolphins from the Taiji hunt.
UPDATE: Here’s a video of Angel being hand-fed.
