Thanks to Nancy for sending pics and the update on the baby sea lion pup:

“I was at the zoo yesterday, and wanted to share these pictures of a new addition to the Sea Lion family. She was so playful, and followed children’s hands along the glass. One person would toss their hat up in the air in front of her, and she would somersault in the water. A lovely addition to the zoo—I encourage everyone to go pay her a visit!”

    Sea lions are great, especially the young’uns. We’ve played with the ones at zoos like Nancy describes. But also, teenaged sea lions in the wild love to play– they clown around, mimic you, bring you presents, etc. Wonderful experience.

    “One person would toss their hat up in the air in front of her, and she would somersault in the water.” I love it! Great story and photos.

    We did this a few weeks ago! Our 2-year-old got in on the fun after a bigger kid showed him how. With the soothing music playing, it was very majestic.
