Hello Aquarium blog readers! It’s been a while since I’ve written a blog, but I have to say, Julien has been doing a fabulous job of writing whale blogs in the meantime! I wanted to jump in and write a blog this week because I recently got confirmation that a mystery whale I spotted a few YEARS ago was a…of course you have to read on to find out!

Pinniped Encounters at the Aquarium of the Pacific

Up close and personal with a sea lion or seal.

Although Parker the sea lion is the star of the popular pinniped encounters at the Aquarium of the Pacific he is not the only animal ambassador from the seal and sea lion exhibit. His understudies, Harpo the sea lion and Shelby the harbor seal are also ready to meet and greet aquarium guests. Each animal brings their own unique style and personality to the session.

Et tu, Brude?

ALSO, THE FIRST BLUE!

Feeding Frenzy

The fish at the Aquarium enjoy enrichment, just like our other animals. And they can be quite good at the puzzle solving required by some enrichments, especially with the right motivation… food!
