Baby seal born at Aquarium of Niagara

NIAGARA FALLS, NY-- There's a new addition to the Aquarium of Niagara in Niagara Falls.

The aquarium announced Thursday the birth of a new harbor seal pup.

The female pup was born July 13, 2017 to proud parents Pickles and Zoey. She just had her first vet check this week.  Aquarium officials say she is healthy and currently weighs 46 lbs.    

“We are so excited to have a girl and have enjoyed watching our first pup in 30 years grow and learn every day,” said Richelle Swem, Curator of Animal Care.

The aquarium staff is undecided between two names: Dill and Zara, so they're asking the public to help them decide.   You can cast your vote on the aquarium's Facebook page. The winning name will be announced August 10.
