You can tell that Flaherty the seal is very comfortable around Walter. That's because they have a date every month! Walter visits the New Balance Foundation Marine Mammal Center to help feed the little (but growing quickly!) seal. Flaherty usually eats a yummy assortment of herring and silver sides. It just doesn't usually come out of a festive birthday gift bag.
|Happy birthday, Flaherty!|
Let's take a walk down memory lane to see how little Flaherty has grown up.
- The oh-so-adorable birth announcement
- Some of the first video of the little seal with his mom Ursula while the pair was behind the scenes
- Ursula was protective of her pup when he was introduced to the exhibit.
- Flaherty's best bud is Leu. These two definitely know how to play rough and tumble. (Just check out the examples here, here and here. Oh, boys!)
- Wee Flaherty was no match for some of this winter's snow drifts
- Flaherty's not the only one with a summer birthday! Here's how the harbor seals celebrate.
