Cologne (dpa / lnw) - The summer heat doesn't bother him: A sea lion baby has recently been splashing around in the Cologne Zoo. The little girl was alert and playing in the pool with her six adult companions, the zoo announced on Thursday. Mother of the Californian sea lion cub is eight-year-old "Mia", father of the same age "Oz".
The baby is still suckled by the mother until it is twelve months old, before the diet is switched to fish. Then the animal keepers will also start training the girl, who has not yet been named, so that she can later take part in the popular public shows.
