Ziggy Returns to Newport Aquarium

by |

One of Greater Cincinnati's favorite aquatic creatures, Ziggy, is back safely at home!

After 8 months of rehabilitative therapy, Ziggy the Nurse Shark is back at the Newport Aquarium (1 Aquarium Way, Newport, Ky).

Ziggy has a spinal deformation that has slowed her down some, but has never kept her down. Therapists off-site have been working with Ziggy to strengthen her mobility by having her swim against a current on her non-favored side; to keep her motivated, trainers have rewarded Ziggy with her favorite treat- Mackerel!

Visit Ziggy and her aquatic friends at the aquarium; head to newportaquarium.com or call 1-800-406-3474 for more information.
