OCEAN CITY, Md. (AP) - Megatron the seal has been released back into his natural habitat after spending several weeks in rehabilitation.

The National Aquarium in Baltimore released the juvenile seal on Wednesday in Ocean City. The animal was rescued in February from Bethany Beach, Delaware, and brought to the Baltimore aquarium.

Officials say in a new release that Megatron spent 11 weeks in rehabilitation after a case of dehydration, emaciation and skin lesions.

He gained almost 21 pounds and grew 15 centimeters in length while being taken care of at the aquarium.
