Pelicans

Skylar

Age: 9 (estimated)

Favorite Food: Diet consists of fish, including silversides and capelin.


Is it Skylar or Ricky?

Skylar currently shares space with Ricky in our aviary. She is smaller in overall size and also a little shorter than Ricky. The most notable difference between the two is her left leg – which is permanently deformed due to a previous injury that fractured it. Because of the way her leg healed, she will always have a slight limp when she walks.

Skylar is very inquisitive but can be shy. She continues to build relationships and learn with her Animal Care Team.

Skylar’s Name:

Named in honor of Skylar Ann Scarnecchia, a 7th-grade cancer survivor and amputee, who impresses us with her courage and smile. Her prosthetic leg comes from Hangar Clinic, where Winter gets her prosthetic tail.
