Thank you for the explanation poor lil thing, as we ALL know stuffy noses can be absolutely terribly uncomfortable and annoying. Glad to hear he's in the best possible hands.

Trekin, he (or she) has a bit of a cold... These guys are being monitored by our local marine life rescue people, and were this a serious condition, the critter would be taken off to the rescue center and treated.

About Tsurai


I'm fortunate enough to live 'way up on the northwestern coast of northern California, an area sometimes referred to as The Humboldt Nation, or the land behind the redwood curtain. Work takes me on the road six months a year, but the rest of the time is mine to surf, kayak, fish, watch birds, and of course take photographs of this remarkable region. Create your own visitor map!
