The seals and sea lions at Seaquarium
In the giant pool in Seaquarium's marine mammals' area, you'll find number of harbour seals and Patagonian sea lions ...
It's always a great fun to watch the seals and sea lions cavorting about in the Marine Mammals' area: sit in the terraces and watch them swimming, sleeping and eating...
You might even be able to play with some of the younger ones in the undersea observatory !
Guests are generally informed of the next meal being served to these cheerful Pinnipedia over the loudspeaker…
SIMBA: the only male Patagonian sea lion in Seaquarium, Simba is the oldest of all our animals.
He weighs nearly 300 kg and, despite his size, he's an excellent learner who loves working with the trainers and enjoy amusing our guests ...
LOLA: born in 1993, she travelled a lot before joining the other sea lions in Seaquarium in 2009.
Lola weighs 120 kg and has a very strong character to match ! Highly intelligent, she still has a lot to learn in order to become as skilful as the other 2 sea lions.
VICTORIA: although young (she was born in 2005), Victoria is extremely dynamic. Lively and curious, she's always interested in learning new exercises.
She joined the team to complete Simba's harem.
TALI: Tali is a young female harbour seal born in 2006. You can pick her out from the others by her coat which is much more spotted than the other seals.
She loves to sunbathe in between training sessions.
SINAI: Sinaï is a young female harbour seal who was born in Seaquarium in 2007. Sinaï is still quite unruly during training sessions but she's pretty elever and she learns the exercises relatively fast.
KAILA: Kaïla is a very dynamic female harbour seal, born in Seaquarium in 2004.
She loves following the visitors who wander along the undersea observatory, and she's always ready to do some somersaults to amuse both children and adults ...
MONA: born in 2003, Mona was the first baby seal to be born in Seaquarium... which makes her the oldest in the group of 5 seals.
She's calm and very attentive during the training sessions.
PIX: the only male seal in the Seaquarium and the youngest, as he was born in 2008. He rules the roost among the females, despite his young age !
He'll reach maturity at around 5-6 years old, but in the meantime he enjoys amusing the guests or playing with his toys in the poll ...
