Introducing Yulelogs, a vivacious grey seal that will never turn down a nibble.
Before being put back into the wild, Yulelogs spent his early years at a marine park in the north of England. But after spending so much time in jail, he had grown accustomed to receiving sweets from others.
To mark the milestone, the sanctuary gave him a special present: an ice cake filled with fish.
Yulelogs was thrilled — and he wasn’t afraid to show it.
“Yulelogs absolutely loved his birthday cake,” Georgina Shannon, the marketing and media coordinator for the sanctuary, told The Dodo. “It’s a great form of enrichment for him also as it requires a bit of thinking on how to get the fish out of the cake!”
The birthday party not only made Yulelogs happy, but cheered up his carers as well.
“It’s been an incredibly tough few months at the sanctuary and for everyone due to COVID-19,” Shannon said. “So it was just really nice to have a moment of celebration.”
