California Sea Lion
|Binomial||Zalophus californianus||Wikipedia||California Sea Lion|
The Denver Zoo currently has five sea lions:
- Luci, F, (2001)
- Nick, M, (2007)
- Ady, F, (2010)
- Duke, M, wild
- Maverick, M wild
Nick, used to predict, not always succesfully, whether the Denver Broncos will win their games by choosing between two balls representing either team. He took over doing this after Gidget passed away.
The Denver Zoo gives plenty of good information for telling Sea Lions from Seals including Sea Lions having visible ears and pointier snouts. This is good to learn to tell any sea lions from any seals, however the lazy, Zoo specific cheat is that their Harbor Seals have spots and their California Sea Lions don't.
Past residents include:
- Gidget (17 June, 1985 - 31 October, 2012)
- Bismark (Wild- 22 August, 2012)
