Megatron the seal is back in his natural habitat. 

The seal was rescued in February from Bethany Beach, Del. and brought to the National Aquarium in Baltimore for rehabilitation. 

The aquarium's Animal Rescue Team treated him for dehydration, emaciation and skin lesions. He has since gained 21 pounds and has grown 15 centimeters in length.
