The Vancouver Aquarium has a new little Timbit.
That is, a rescued Harbor seal pup.
They’ve named him Timbit and he’s now in safe hands thanks to the quick work of the Aquarium’s rescue unit.
The director of the Vancouver Aquarium’s Marine Mammal Rescue Centre says Timbit was in rough shape when they found him.
“He’s been fairly lethargic. He was separated from his mom so he was definitely under weight and fairly dehydrated,” says Lindsaye Akhurst.
Once he perks up handlers will teach him how to hunt for his own food.
“We’re hoping that he does really well with his rehabilitation process, that he gains weight, and eventually we’ll change him from his formula that he’s on and teach him how to catch fish.”
Akhurst says they expect to release Timbit in about three months.
