Tristan's slow healing process
Date: 18 March 2008

Just spoke to Ziggy, the Lagoon's Wildlife Technician; she takes Tristan from his temporary home to the vet clinique every week for the cleaning of his open wound on his foot. Tristan's vet, Dr. Anne McDonald, says that the wound is slowly closing. Ziggy says that the pink flesh can still be seen in the cut; the black skin of the foot has not covered it all yet.

For that reason, Tristan can't return to the Lagoon yet because he would catch an infection right away and would die within a few days.

A few more weeks to go, it seems. We will keep you posted.
