Of course we had to celebrate in fashion...with a fish cake, complete with 22 "capelin candles" around the edge!
Roxie enjoyed her cake slightly differently than many other seals would. Instead of just diving right in and devouring all of the fish in less than a minute, she used her whiskers to feel around the tray and carefully pick out each individual fish. Now this technique wasn't just used randomly; Roxie actually relies on her whiskers very heavily throughout most parts of her day because she is blind. Her whiskers allow her to pick up additional information such as objects or animals in front of her, or in this case it helps her find the fish.
Check out this video to see how she uses those whiskers to enjoy her cake.
Happy birthday Roxie!!
