Meet Smiley, the PGH Zoo’s new Sea lion pup!

In partnership with our friends at the Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium, we would like to introduce you to Smiley – their newest sea lion pup! Smiley was born on Wednesday, June 10 to mom, Kalilah, a California sea lion. 

With a name inspired by our iconic Smiley Cookie, we can tell that Smiley is going to be a natural at creating smiles for kids of all ages!

Once Kelilah and Smiley get a little more acclimated, the veterinary team and animal care specialists will exam, weigh, and determine Smiley’s gender. The team will not interfere unless Smiley isn’t nursing or stops communicating with Kelilah. Smileys next big challenge? Swimming lessons, which will start in a few shorts weeks! 

Head to the zoo now to say hi to Smiley for yourself!
