Ted the Sea Turtle, voted Orlando’s Most Loved Animal, turned 22 in 2022 and SEA LIFE ORLANDO Aquarium recently held special activities to ‘shell’abrate. As a special surprise, Ted was treated to a tasty enrichment “birthday cake.”
Divers presented a colorful ice block of fish, krill, pellet, fruit and veggies. This type of interactive enrichment is a key part of the animal care team’s duties in order to stimulate and expand on the animals natural behaviors.
Ted the Turtle also got some other birthday toys from divers. Check out these photos:
Ted was voted Orlando’s Most Loved Animal in 2021 and will be featured on a Frontier Airlines plane tail at the end of this year. To find out more about Ted’s conservation story, visit SEA LIFE Orlando Aquarium and learn more about up close and interactive animal experiences.
