Elvis LIVES!

At the Oregon Coast Aquarium, that is. They have some new residents- meet Elvis (above) along with Tater (second photo) and in the third photo, Tater and Swap exchange sniffs. (Which is what Harbor Seals do best.)

Tater sports a dry coat during her first moments at the Oregon Coast Aquarium.

We Know Who THIS Guy Is Pulling For

The Seattle Aquarium is at it again! Last year they brought us Marshawn Pinch, named after the star Seahawks player Marshawn Lynch. This season, Harbor Seals Barney, Siku and Q (no, we don’t know who is who- no jersey numbers) are getting fired up for tomorrow’s Super Bowl.
