New resident at Dehiwala Zoo
you know that we have a new guest at the Dehiwala Zoological Gardens? We
are sure that this guest would be welcomed by all of you. It is none
other than a young seal and it has been brought to Sri Lanka from the
Crefold Zoo of Germany.
The three-month-old sea mammal, named Carl, is currently on display
after been quarantined (kept separate from others) at the zoo's Min
Medura for some time.
The seal is three feet long and weighs 25 kilos. The Dehiwala Zoo
already has a seal which had been a gift of the Yuino Zoo in Japan. With
the new arrival, the zoo now has a pair of these animals.
So, hurry and make your way to the zoo to greet this cute new guest
