What...

The Milwaukee County Zoo is proud to announce the birth of a male harbor seal pup, the first-ever for the Zoo, born the morning of June 8 (also World Oceans Day).

 

The pup was named King Julian after the lemur king in the animated "Madagascar" movies. He was born to first-time mother, Sydney, and father, Ringo, both of whom were born in the wild. King Julian is on public exhibit, and zookeepers report it’s doing well, nursing and swimming. Sydney has been very attentive to the pup, and proving to be a very good mother.
