Anatomy of a Sea Lion Buddy Picture | Hugh  

Anatomy of a Sea Lion Buddy Picture

How to take a Besties shot with Harpo the sea lion.

The image looks simple enough. An Aquarium staffer and a sea lion perched side by side. Their arms and flipper are around each other in a friendly embrace while posing for a picture. It’s just one of the perks of being a long-time husbandry volunteer. Sounds easy right? Well taking that photo involved more than you might think.

Aquarium Critter Shorts | Hugh  

Aquarium Critter Shorts

An anthropomorphic look at some of the antics of the aquarium animals

This week I’d like to share a few anthropomorphic video shorts of some of the critters at the aquarium. A sea lion doing his best Chris Paul imitations with a basketball. A sea otter trying to take a good selfie. And even what happens after two penguins get romantically involved.
