This California sea lion pup was born in June to first-time mom Cali.
The maternity ward has been busy, busy, busy over at the Houston Zoo. A California sea lion pup was born to Cali, but we have to hold off on naming the little tyke until its gender is determined. We also saw twin red river hogs born to Luna, a quartet of white blotched river stingrays in the aquarium department, and a pair of recently-hatched Palawan peacock-pheasant chicks. And those scary vipers? Not so scary when you see how tiny the African bush vipers actually are. Welcome to H-Town, little guys.
