Today’s interesting fish job was at the Perth Zoo. "Pepper" the koi needed a growth removed from her eye. Here I talked the zoo vet and vet nurse through the anaethesia, pain management, surgery and post-operative care. They did a fantastic job! "Pepper" is now recouperating, prior to be put back with her friends in the Japanese Gardens.
And as a reward, I got to meet Simmo, the giant salt water crocodile, up close and personal. I’m glad to say I still have all my limbs!
