From February of this year. Her ghostly-looking cataract is clearly visible here and is quite interesting to take note of. She reportedly can no longer see out of her right eye, but seeing as Corky is old, it’s entirely possible she could lose vision in her other eye as well. As far as I know, documentation on vision loss in cetaceans is more or less nonexistent. Regardless, she’s been through so much in life; I’m genuinely surprised her health has been as stable as it is.
