Harbor Seal Pup


Born: June 2, 2013
Home: Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium

All About Baby: Generally found lazing around the waters off Puget Sound (or napping on a rock), this particular harbor seal pup can be found nursing at Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium in Tacoma, Washington. In efforts to build enough blubber to regulate his own temperature, this pup needed some quality bonding time with his mother, Shila, before getting exposed to the public. (Avoid the blubber-building diet at home, by the way.) Ultimately, this bright-eyed little guy will grow to anywhere from 150 to 375 lbs. and 5 to 6 feet long.
