Ho’ailona Gets Own Website
The lab at the University of California Santa Cruz where Ho’ailona, formerly and affectionately known as KP2, has created a website so everyone can keep informed of his health.
According to the website, his trainers say he has remained alert and inquisitive and doing very well. Their first goal was to increase his weight – he weighed 16 kilograms (35 pounds) at birth, and now weighs over 70 kg (154 lbs). they increased the variety of fish in his diet and added calories, and trained him for weekly weigh-ins. The staff at UCSC uses “positive reinforcement” training techniques for him to feel relaxed and comfortable for his examinations.
