SeaWorld welcomes first twin sea lion pups

by

Twin sea lions were recently born at SeaWorld Orlando. This is very rare in the animal world and the first time twin sea lions have been born here at SeaWorld.

The baby sea lions are healthy and are nursing from their mom, Fable, who is also doing well. The pups will continue to nurse until they are between six and 12 months old. Fable, who is nearly 14 years old, was also born at SeaWorld Orlando.

The first of the twins was born at 11 a.m. and the second followed a few hours later. The sex of the twins has not yet been determined. Sea lions typically give birth to one pup at a time so this is a grand feat for mom.
