Where Steve went

Weight: 270 kg, Length: 201 cm

Steve is a very big male who was captured on the main beach at Seal Rocks. He was tracked for 66 days between May and December.

On the map below, the coloured line connects locations where Steve’s PTT was detected. Steve spent most of his time in western Bass Strait. He often returned to rest at Seal Rocks and, like Eric, sometimes rested at a small island south of King Island (called Reid Rocks). Although his PTT failed to transmit after 66 days, Steve was still seen at Seal Rocks during research visits after July. In November, Steve returned to Seal Rocks where he became a territorial bull.’
