National Aquarium Cares For Megatron

Don’t let the name fool you. This Megatron is a good guy.

Earlier this month, a male juvenile harbor seal stranded on Bethany Beach in Delaware.  He was rescued and transported to the MERR Institute.  After initial rescue, the seal was transported to the National Aquarium in Maryland for long term rehabiliation.  It was there he received his Transformers-inspired name.

Megatron is currently being treated for dehydration, emaciation, and skin lesions known to be consistent with seal pox.

The aquarium staff is thrilled to report that Megatron is responding well to his fluid therapy and antibiotic treatment.  Further, he is now eating on his own, currently enjoying a diet rich in capelin, herring, and mullet.
