Reef by kamisch42
Reef bobbing around with buoyancy problems...She's a big girl, and a lot better than she was when she got there (almost) 2 years ago. Still, it'd be great to not see her at all anymore, as in, if she would stop floating so we could release her! She's had plates removed, bone plates, dive weights, nebulizations, abscess removals, enemas, radiographs - a whole mess of treatment. She seems to prefer to swim butt-up, even though she can sit at the bottom and hunt crab like a savage beast B-) Soon, Reef...soon.

Initial Weight: 136.4 lbs.
Current Weight: 167.2 lbs.

Visit for more information & to track her progress :)
Surfacing by kamisch42
Seattle back when he was all sickly and weak and still in the shallow tank...coming up for air. He got much, MUCH better - he went home!

Initial Weight: 104.65 lbs.
Current Weight: 128.76 lbs.
Chiquita Spectrum by kamisch42
Chiquita Spectrum
She was found in January 2014 by the local power plant "lethargic, underweight and [with] numerous large barnacles, leeches and leech eggs on its carapace and plastron...missing part of the right rear flipper and a majority of the front left flipper (LMC)." As is usually the case with those intakes, she was hypoglycemic and anemic...but she bounced back quickly! The flipper injuries were old and had healed on their own, and she ate like whoa (just not fish heads...not a fan of those fish heads - who is??). By July, she was happy & healthy and released back to the ocean. 

...just a wee thing, she was :D 

Initial Weight: 30.8 lbs. 
Release Weight: 48.9 lbs

I'm Alive

Journal Entry: Thu Jun 26, 2014, 9:00 PM

Oh look, time for an (almost) biannual update! 

Mostly just to say I'm here...though I don't know why, because I hardly know anyone still on here. A lot of the people I seriously enjoy I follow on Facebook anyway. But I like when I find people I *don't* know on here :) 

Hopefully, I'll have some new writings later in the summer after I go gallivanting across the country - travel tends to excite my senses. But then the fall semester will be pretty steeped in chemistry, so I doubt I'll be able to work on much there. 

Drawing much? Yes & no...I'd say no altogether, but my study notes would argue against me - doodles galore! Which, some are pretty nice, if I do say, but they wouldn't meet DA qualifications (too many lines!). Sorry. 

...also, sorry to :iconflockingowls:, because I've definitely neglected the place. It relies on loyal members to keep running, pretty much. 

In other group news...
