Overall Progress When Leftie arrived into care it was very thin, but as soon as we put it into the rescue tank it took off swimming around like an Olympian. His progress is going well in the eating and weight gain areas, but so far it can only dive in quick short bursts and spends a lot of time floating or cruising around near the surface. We are looking forward to the day Leftie is able to take a dive all the way to the bottom of the tank so we will know the "Floating Syndrome" from being stranded and unwell has completely resolved.
