A mummy and baby Baikal seal can be seen at Sunshine Aquarium, Tokyo from Wednesday 15th May! From the same day, the aquarium will be accepting suggestions for a cute name for the baby seal!
Three weeks after birth, the baby seal started to lose its white baby fur. Now, its fur is completely ash grey! The baby has been weaned off milk and has started to eat fish, however, it is still craving all the attention! When the staff approach, the baby immediately starts to whine and quickly shuffles towards them. The staff stroke the baby’s belly and after looking up at the staff happily, the baby often falls asleep!
The baby seal can be visited by the public from Wednesday 15th May and from the same day, the aquarium will start to take name suggestions from the public. The nickname will be announced on Thursday 13th June!
There is also a chance for you to get your hands on original goods and postcards to celebrate! Please take this opportunity to view these extremely precious Baikal seals and think of a lovely name while you’re at it!
※After a month since birth, the baby will grow black fur and become an adult!
