Genevieve the stingray has just had an out-of-water operation to remove a large lump.
Genevieve can normally be found swimming around in the Zoo’s Aquarium but during a recent routine health check the aquarium team noticed that she had a lump approximately the size of a large cherry next to her mouth. With this in mind, they notified the Zoo’s in house veterinary team to get it surgically removed.
Genevieve weighs 17kg so there were some concerns regarding carrying her to the onsite vet centre so the operation took place in the Aquarium. Genevieve was removed from her usual tank and sedated by spraying anaesthetic over her gils to ensure she did not feel anything during the operation.
After a short surgical operation, Genevieve’s lump was removed and within the hour she was returned to water and can now be seen swimming about as normal.
